    Mikekey's Note:

    A nice change from mashed potatoes. For variety, use yams instead of sweet potatoes; or rutabagas instead of parsnips. If you don't have tahini, use sesame oil

      This is a great side dish! I scaled the recipe down (1 sweet potato and 1 parsnip) and just mashed and whipped them together by hand instead of using a food processor. I really like the cumin with the sweet potatoes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      This was a great side! I just mixed mine with a hand mixer so there would be a little bit of lumps left. The amount of spice was great and the parsnips were a nice touch; may add some carrots too next time for a little sweetness. Made for 2011 Football Pool Win.

      I loved this simple & tasty side, the spicy nutty aftertaste is great, certainly something different. Thanks for posting!
