These aren’t much more work than regular mashed potatoes, but they have a lot more flavor.
Place water in saucepan along with potatoes, parsnips, and garlic and bring to a boil. Add salt, reduce heat, and simmer about 15 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
Set colander over bowl and drain vegetables, then pour them back into saucepan. Add butter or oil and mash, adding cooking water as needed to obtain desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
|Notes||Serve these with Roasted Seitan for a hearty winter meal.
The unused cooking liquid makes a wonderful soup stock.
