Martha Stewart Living Parsnip-Rosemary Muffins

I love baking and cooking with fresh herbs. The smell of freshly snipped herbs is wonderful and creates great flavor in recipes. I would love to have the space to have a garden outside or cats that didn't eat anything green in the house (trust me I have tried too many times to count). As it is I normally have to go to at least two grocery stores to find all the fresh herbs that I want every week. Luckily I love the taste enough that it's worth the hassle. My two boys are just beginning to appreciate the subtle flavors fresh herbs provide and I have been experimenting with a number of new recipes. Recently, Martha Stewart Living had a recipe for Parsnip-Rosemary Muffins, which looked unusual and utilized fresh rosemary.

This recipe has 10 ingredients. It takes 1 hour and 25 minutes and makes 14 muffins. I had no problems finding any of the ingredients at my local grocery store. I used whole milk Greek yogurt instead of the plain low-fat yogurt suggested by the recipe. I already had the Greek yogurt in my fridge (I eat it every morning) and I didn't want to spent money on additional yogurt that wasn't needed. I peeled my parsnips before grating them into the recipe. The recipe didn't recommend this step, but I prefer root vegetables grated. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.

I liked the unusual flavor of these muffins. They made a great dinner side for the meat dish that I prepared alongside and had a delicious flavor from the fresh chopped rosemary. My two sons ate numerous muffins without realizing that they weren't the usual sweet muffins that they normally eat. Overall, a nice combination of flavors that would go well with a variety of main dishes.

For the recipe go to Parsnip-Rosemary Muffins.
