This autumn-inspired purée is a delicious change of pace from applesauce. It's wonderful on its own but also makes a great topping for pancakes and muffins.

Ingredients

Pear(s)

3 medium, cored, seeded and diced

Uncooked parsnip(s)

4 medium, trimmed, peeled and diced

Low-fat buttermilk

3 tbsp(s)

Ground cardamom

tsp(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp(s), or to taste

Black pepper

¼ pinch, or to taste

Water

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Combine pears and parsnips in a small pot; add 1/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and cook until parsnips are very tender, about 15 minutes; drain off any liquid.
  2. Place pears and parsnips in a blender or food processor fitted with a steel blade. Add remaining ingredients and process until mixture is lightly pureed. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.
