Coarsely mashing boiled carrots and parsnips together with a little butter highlights the sweetness of both. The two vegetables will not fully incorporate completely into a pale orange mash, but instead the orange and white parts stay just separate enough to make a beautiful mosaic. Alongside a heap of dark-green spring cabbage, it’s an Irish flag on a plate.
