This is such a simple recipe but one that I feel everyone should have in their arsenal.

Whether you want a lower carb option than regular mashed pots, you’re following the AIP, or just want to change up your side dishes, this fits the bill all around.

Parsnips have such a nice sharp, slightly spicy flavor.  They really don’t need much to make them shine.  I prefer garlic (of course) and sometimes dried herbs, but not always.

For creaminess, hands down mayo is the best. (isn’t mayo the answer to everything??)  If you’re needing an egg-free option, coconut milk works well but there will be the tiniest hint of coconut flavor that lingers.

Best enjoyed topped with slow-cooked meats, preferably straight out of my Instant Pot.

Creamy Whipped Parsnips

1 lb. parsnips, peeled & chopped

2 tbsp. butter, ghee, lard, or tallow

2 tbsp. mayonnaise (or coconut cream for egg-free)

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tsp. sea salt

½ tsp. black pepper

Optional: crushed herb de provence, dried parsley, or oregano

Directions:

Bring a minimum 2 quarts of filtered water to a rolling boil in a large saucepan.  Add the parsnips and cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes.  Drain the parsnips and set them aside to steam for a couple of minutes.

In the meantime, add the butter, mayo, minced garlic, sea salt, black pepper, and herbs (if using) to the bowl of a food processor.  Add the cooked parsnips and process until very smooth, about 1-2 minutes, scraping down the sides as needed.

    How could this be converted to an Instant Pot recipe? 🙂

    These were excellent. I used olive oil for the “fat” and subbed garlic powder for fresh. I had to boil the snot out of them until they were soft enough to puree. A cuisinart-like machine is a must to get the best result (worth making one more thing dirty in the kitchen). Thanks so much for the recipe and inspiration!

    • Thank you for the feedback! And I agree about the Cuisinart! 🙂
