Irish Parsnip Patties
4 cups parsnips, peel, cut in chunks
1 onion, minced
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
2 eggs, beaten slightly
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped
2 cups bread crumbs, whole grain
Steam parsnips until tender - 10 or 15 minutes. While parsnips are cooking,
saute onion in oil. Add tarragon.
Mash parsnips with potato masher (a few lumps are okay). Stir onion into mashed
parsnips with egg, salt, and walnuts.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Form parsnip mixture into patties, using about 1/3 cup
for each. Spread half the bread crumbs on a greased baking sheet and place
patties on crumbs. Press remaining crumbs on top. Bake for 20 minutes. Makes 12
