I was looking for something to do with a potato that was a little different - I think I found it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cover parsnip and potato with water by 1 inch in a 3-quart saucepan. Add salt and bring to a boil, partially covered.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer vegetables, partially covered, until tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Reserve 1/4 cup cooking water, then drain vegetables in a colander. Return vegetables to pan and coarsely mash with a fork, discarding any tough core from parsnip if necessary. Stir in butter, 2 tablespoons reserved cooking water, and salt and pepper to taste. Thin with additional cooking water if desired.
