Cook time: 15-20 minutes
Yield: 8 servings
Serving size: ¾ cup
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
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.
