25 Min

Need a great potato holiday go-along for your main dish? Then these Fast Mashed Potates and Parsnips are the perfect choice. The parsnips add a flavorful earthy taste o these creamy traditional-style mashed potatoes.

What You'll Need:
  • 6 large Idaho Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 6 medium-sized parsnips, peeled, and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 medium-sized onions, peeled and cut into 8 wedges
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water; add the potatoes, parsnips, onion, and garlic. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Add the sour cream, salt, and pepper and beat with an electric beater for 3 to 4 minutes, or until creamy.

You can make these a day or two before planning to serve them. Then you can just heat 'em in the microwave for a few minutes before mealtime.
