Mashed Potatoes with Parsnip and Horseradish

An underappreciated root vegetable, the parsnip looks like a white carrot and has a slightly sweet flavor. Parsnips can be cooked in the same way you cook carrots, boiled, steamed, roasted or grilled. Unlike carrots, however, they are not good eaten raw. Try to buy them individually rather than in bags, since the bagged ones are often not as fresh and, once peeled, are usually too thin to be useful in many dishes. Parsnips are at their peak of flavor during the cold winter months when frost converts their starches to sugar.

Spectacular Side

My husband and I loved these potatoes! They were different and really flavorful. The parsnip/horseradish combination worked beautifully together. We served with fish and would make this again.
Pros: Will Make Again

Nice change of pace for potatoes
May 3, 2010
I made this for dinner party, and it was the surprise hit. A great change of pace from regular mashed potatoes -- the parsnips added depth and the horseradish a surprise kick (although I did warn the guests before they took their first bite). Will defnitely make this again.
