Pro tips:

  • If you prefer very smooth potatoes, use an electric mixer to reach desired smoothness. If you want more of a rustic feel like ours, we used our OXO potato masher.
  • Play around with the types of potatoes. Try red potatoes with the skin on for added color and texture.

Rosemary Garlic Potato and Parsnip Mash

Recipe: Rosemary Garlic Potato and Parsnip Mash
Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15-20 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

Serving size: ¾ cup

Ingredients

1 pound baking potatoes (about 4 small)

1 pound parsnips (about 2 medium or 1 large)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon minced garlic

2 teaspoons fresh minced rosemary

¾ cup unsweetened almond milk

¼ teaspoon salt

black pepper, to taste

Instructions

Peel and chop the potatoes and parsnips in 1- or 2-inch pieces.

Put them in a large saucepan and cover them with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook until fork-tender, 15-20 minutes.

When the vegetables are almost done, heat a small saucepan over medium-low heat.

Add the butter, garlic, and rosemary, and cook until the garlic and butter just start getting browned, about 3 minutes.

Drain the potatoes and parsnips, then put them back into the pan they were cooked in.

Add the butter mixture and almond milk to the potatoes and parsnips. Use a potato masher to mash to desired consistency.

Season with salt and pepper.
