Chestnut & Parsnip Dip

Chestnut & Parsnip Dip

A fabulous festive Chestnut & Parsnip Dip recipe from the Dairy Diary.

Chestnut & Parsnip Dip


Parsnips 300g (10oz), peeled and cut into small chunks

Olive oil 2 tbsp

Celeriac 300g (10oz), peeled and cut into small chunks

Cooked chestnuts 180g pack

Garlic 1 clove, peeled and crushed

Vegetable stock 200-250ml (7-9fl oz)

Bay leaves 2

Celery salt ½ tsp

Red chicory 4 heads, leaves separated

Smoked paprika (optional)




Add parsnips to oil in a large lidded pan. Fry over a medium heat for 3 minutes. Add celeriac, chestnuts and garlic and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Pour in just enough stock to cover vegetables and add bay leaves. Cover and cook on a low heat for about 25 minutes until all vegetables are tender.


Remove bay leaves and use a hand-held stick blender to purée. Season with celery salt and black pepper.


Arrange chicory leaves on a serving dish, spoon a teaspoon of dip onto each and dust with paprika, if you like.
