A clever marriage of sweet and smoky, this dish serves as a flavorful counterpart to roasted meats or a warming snack on its own.



Cover parsnips and potatoes with cold water by 1 inch in a 6- to 8-quart pot. Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil, partially covered. Reduce heat and simmer vegetables, partially covered, until very tender but not falling apart, 30 to 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring cream, butter, smoked paprika and remaining 2 teaspoons salt to a simmer in a 4-quart heavy pot over moderate heat. Drain vegetables in a colander. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until desired creaminess.

New take on mashed potatoes

Great way to serve parsnips. The smoky paprika really makes this dish. I substituted 2% milk for the heavy cream which worked out nicely.


I love anything with smoky paprika!
