Step 1Put the parsnips in a pan with the bay leaf and cover with the milk. Bring gently to the boil and simmer until very soft, about 15-20 minutes.
Step 2Strain the parsnips and reserve the milk. Put the parsnips in a food processor with a dash of the milk and blend until smooth.
Step 3Add the breadcrumbs, almonds and half the garlic and blend while adding the olive oil in a steady stream until it comes together. Add the juice of at least half the lemon and a good pinch of salt. Now check your seasoning.
