A No Recipe Baked Mashed Parsnips, Onion & Cauliflower

Recipe by SarasotaCook
READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 6-8




  • Vegetables -- In a large pot, add the cauliflower and parsnips and then top with enough salted water to cover the vegetables. Bring up to a boil and then reduce to medium and cook until the parsnips and cauliflower is tender. They should take about 10-15 minutes. Drain and return to the pot to dry out the extra water. Reduce the temp to medium low.
  • Topping -- As the vegetables cook -- Just put the butter in a small microwavable bowl or cup and melt, just a few seconds. Remove and let cool a minute or so, then stir in the bread crumbs and cheese and set to the side.
  • Mash -- Now in the pot with the vegetables after they have dried a minute or so (medium, low heat), add the butter, cream, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and start slow. Mash and see what the texture is. You can always use a bit more cream or a bit more butter, but I start slow and add a little at a time. Mash until you get the consistency you like.
  • Bake -- 350 degree oven preheated. Just add the mashed vegetables to a small baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray and then top with the bread crumbs. Bake until golden brown. About 15-20 minutes.
  • Serve -- With anything and enjoy. It's like a baked potato dish, but no spuds - Just healthier. Really good!
