Mashed Winter Root Vegetables

Put celery root, parsley root and potatoes in 3-quart saucepan; cover with water and add salt. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until very tender (test parsley root, as it takes the longest to soften), about 25 minutes. Drain in colander. Return to pot over medium heat to dry out mixture, shaking pot often, about 5 minutes.


Mash vegetables with masher or ricer. Add milk or broth and butter. Season with peper to taste. Beat with whisk until fluffy. Serve hot, garnished with minced parsley (if using).

This mixture comes off as a nice taste surprise, as it’s white and looks like potatoes. Serve with game, roasted or braised meats or poultry. I prefer Yukon Gold potatoes.
