Difficulty: Beginner Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 60 min Total Time 1 hr 10 mins Servings: 6 Best Season: Fall


This simple side-dish can replace fattier mashed potatoes by using parsnips, which are high in manganese and Vitamin B5. 



  1. In a saucepan, combine the parsnips and salt and enough water to cover them.

  2. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender and two-thirds of the water has evaporated.

  3. Mash the mixture and season with salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste.

  4. Set the pan over another containing simmering water, cover and let cook for 20 to 30 minutes more.
