Herb Butter Parsnips
From Tyler Florence
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 pounds parsnips, peeled and sliced into circles
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 pound unsalted butter, softened
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup mixed chopped fresh herbs, like chervil, parsley and chives
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Put the olive oil and butter into a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and toss to coat them well with the fat; season with salt and pepper. Add 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, cover the pot, and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, make the Herb Butter by combining the soft butter and herbs together; season with some salt and pepper.
3. To serve, spread some Herb Butter in the bottom of a bowl. Add the hot vegetables and dot with more Herb Butter. Moisten with some of the cooking liquid and serve.
