Day 12 of the Paleo Challenge / by Stephen Cooper

Grilled shrimp with garlic, parsley, oregano and dill.

Mashed parsnips (my first time making it and I was beyond surprised how good parsnips are!)
2 Parsnips, peeled and cut into small chucks
3/4 cup of chicken broth
garlic (optional)
salt (optional)
nutmeg and cinnamon (optional)

Combine parsnips with chicken broth and 3/4 cup water (I dumped in some chopped garlic at this point just because I think they make everything taste better). With the lid on, simmer for approximately 15 minutes until the parsnips are tender. Drain off broth and put on the side.  Mash parsnips (and garlic) with a potato masher. Add broth if need to get the desired consistency.  Add salt to taste and can dust off with nutmeg and cinnamon. 

VERY yummy! Even my non-vegetable, non-Paleo boyfriend loved it.  Portion above makes about 2 servings.
