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.

I've lost 3-4 pounds. It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been, how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner. I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies. I've eaten more of these a...

Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond

Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going...

Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis?

That's interesting, thanks. I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too. I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like los...
