Mashed potato and parsnip recipe

The mashed potato and parsnip is easy to prepare, the trick is to choose the right mashed potatoes (Bintje)

  • Start by peeling then cleaning the potatoes and parsnips.
  • Cut the parsnip into pieces, calibrating them like the potatoes so as to have an equivalent cooking time.
  • Place the vegetables in a large pot of cold salted water.
  • Bring to a boil, cover and leave to cook for 20 min, maintaining a slight boil.
  • Use a sharp knife to check the state of doneness.
  • Empty the water when it's done.
  • Crush with a puree press (avoid the blender because the texture of the parsnip puree is important).
  • Add the butter then the milk and finally the sour cream.
  • You can add a little milk if necessary to make the puree smoother.
  • Adjust the seasoning with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Serve hot.
