Mashed Potatoes with Parsnips and Herbs (Gluten-Free)

I am one of those people who has been perfectly okay making various kinds of mashed potatoes, and even sweet potatoes, but has been a bit skittish regarding the parsnip.

Unfamiliarity and fear of the unknown were likely driving factors. Then I discovered this simple way to incorporate parsnips into mashed potatoes, and the result is a big smile. This recipe makes a nice introduction to the parsnip.

  • 1½ pounds parsnips
  • 1½ pounds Yukon gold potatoes
  • 4½ cups water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Peel parsnips. Cut them crosswise into ½-inch rounds. If you get parsnips with a tough, fibrous core, then cut the parsnips in quarters lengthwise and cut out the tough core.

Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1 to 1½-inch chunks.

Place into a medium saucepan, cover with water, add two teaspoons of salt. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat, cover and let cook for 10 minutes, until a fork can pierce easily. Drain and return the parsnips and potatoes to the warm pan. Cover and let steam in the heat of the pan for 10 minutes.

Mash the parsnips and potatoes lightly with a potato masher.

Careful not to over mash!

Add butter and sour cream and mash some more. Stir in the chopped parsley and chives.

Add black pepper and more salt to taste.
