'I just love messing around with old classics, got a great new twist on the humble Mashed Potato.

This Parsnip Mash recipe is a great way of re-inventing this classic. The Parsnips give the mash a sweet taste and a flavour of its own '

This mash just smells like Christmas ....


Method : 
  • Peel the Parsnips and keep the trimmings in a jug of water as you can use these later for a vegetable stock.
  • Cut the Parsnips in half then half again.
  • Add the parsnips to a pan of salted water.
  • Do the same for the Potatoes (Remember, the more potatoes you use the less of a parsnip taste to the mash). I normally work on 70% parsnip to 30% Potato. I find this gives a nice balance of flavour.
  • Bring the pan to a boil then simmer until the Parsnips and Potatoes are cooked enough to slide a knife into them easily.
  • Drain them into a colander and leave to dry out for 10 minutes.
  • When the Parsnips & Potatoes are dry get them into a clean pan ready for mashing.
  • I like to mash them up before adding any Butter or Milk.
  • When they are mashed and smooth you can add a good lump of butter, probably around 40 g.
  • Once this is mashed in add a splash of milk, depending how dry the mash is, then beat this in with a wooden spoon until the mash is creamy and smooth.
