The parsnip is a vegetable which benefits from being left in the ground during the winter as the frost helps convert its starch into sugar, making for a sweeter taste. I’ve used it in this recipe to create a lovely, light and crispy gnocchi.
If you are looking for a little sweetness after dinner, these grain-free tropical chocolate rum balls are just what you need to satisfy the craving. The rum balls are made with cocoa, nuts, pineapple and rum. The sweetness comes from dates, so no need to add a sweetener. This recipe is acceptable on a gluten-free, paleo and raw diet.
