There was one lonely parsnip in my vegetable drawer, and I needed a quick side dish. I threw together this recipe, and it was a colorful alternative to mashed potato.
1 medium parsnip, peeled and cut into 2″ pieces
2 medium carrot, peeled and cut into 2″ pieces
Splash skim milk
Salt & Pepper
Boil parsnip and carrots for about 20 minutes, until soft. Drain and mash with a fork. Add a splash of milk, salt, and pepper, and mix well.
