This is a lovely dish to serve with rich flavoured casseroles, like coq au vin or beef in red wine. It's a bit different from the usual vegies, but still good old fashioned comfort food! The recipe below makes enough to serve six as a side dish.
- 5 -6 large parsnips
- 2 large turnips
- 2 large swedes
- 200 g mushrooms, sliced thinly
- 100 g shredded or grated tasty cheddar cheese, to taste
- 25 g sliced parmesan cheese, to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 5 tablespoons butter, to mash vegetables
- 1⁄8 cup milk, if you prefer a smoother mash (optional)
- Turn oven on to 180 degrees.
- Peel and chop into boiling-sized chunks parsnips, turnips and swedes.
- Place combined vegetables into large saucepan, cover with water and boil until tender- around 20- 25 minutes.
- Drain vegetables and mash with salt, pepper and butter until they are of desired consistency.
- If smoother result required, add milk to taste and mash again, otherwise proceed with next step.
- Place mashed vegies into a round, shallow dish for baking Top with thinly sliced mushrooms Sprinkle shredded/ grated tasty cheddar cheese over dish.
- Sprinkle sliced parmesan over cheddar.
- Bake at 180 degrees until cheese is melted and browned.
This was a lovely way to serve vegetables that I've never really been sure how to use. I didn't have the required quantity of parsnips so I added some potato and carrot. I'll try it the proper way next time. This will be a great winter recipe.
A hearty vegetable mash which we enjoyed greatly with Creamy Sausage and Triple Mustard Casserole #89260. Next time we may add some sliced leeks to the root vegetables, and sprinkle with some breadcrumbs, as well as the cheese, before popping into the oven. Thanks Susan :-)
