Fresh Parsnip Dough

IMAG0361

For those of you looking to sneak some extra veggies into your diet, this parsnip dough can be used to make pasta, perogies, or ravioli. It adds a slightly nutty flavor to the dough, which compliments a lot of fillings nicely but is not super noticeable. It is super easy to make and just requires a little bit of time.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium parsnips(about 1-1/2 cups chopped)NOTE: This will yield about 1 cup pureed parsnips
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3 cups of flour, plus more for dusting
  • pinch of salt(optional)

Directions:

  1. Peel and dice your parsnips then place them in a small-medium sauce pan and cover with water. Bring the saucepan to a simmer over medium heat and cook for about 15 minutes or until the parsnips tender. They should easily cut with a knife.
  2. Puree the cooked parsnips in a food processor or with a blender (you should have about 1 cup puree).
  3. Add eggs and yolk to puree in food processor/blender, and process until combined.
  4. Add flour and process until dough just comes together, about 20 seconds. NOTE: If you want to add a little salt for flavor add it in with the flour.
  5. Transfer the dough to a clean, well-floured surface. Knead for about 5-10 minutes until the dough is smooth and pliable. You can add a bit more flour here if the dough is too sticky.
  6. Wrap the dough tightly in plastic and let rest for 1 to 2 hours.
  7. You may now run the dough through a pasta maker, shape it into ravioli, or lasagna or any other type of pasta you want.
