ABOUT THE RECIPE:
Petite Peas and Parsnips are an excellent side dish, providing both color and taste.
MAKES 4 TO 6 SERVINGS
4 parsnips, peeled and thinly sliced
1 bag (16 ounces) frozen organic petite peas
2 teaspoons vegan margarine (optional)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Fit a steamer basket into a medium sauce pan with a tight-fitting lid. Add 2 inches of cold water, then add the parsnips. Cover and bring to a boil. Steam for 6 to 8 minutes, or until crisp tender. Add the frozen peas. Continue to steam until the peas are hot and the parsnips are soft, about 3 minutes more. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the vegan margarine (if using), salt, and pepper to taste. Toss gently until the parsnips and peas are evenly coated. Serve warm.
