Roasted mashed parsnips

I really though this was delicious even though my family was just EH about it.  It’s not much work so it’s worth a try to see if you like it!  I used 2 bags of parsnips, but if you’re serving more than 4 adults you may need another bag.


  • 2 bags parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks (remove top and bottom pieces).
  • 3 TBSP butter, melted
  • Small container light cream
  • Dash of nutmeg (optional)
  • Sea salt & pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 400º
  • Put parsnips in bowl and coat with butter
  • Spread out on baking sheet in single layer


  • Roast 20-25 minutes turning once, or until golden brown
  • Put parsnips back into bowl, add 1/2 cup light cream, approx 1 tsp each salt & pepper, dash of nutmeg, and mash with a potato masher.  Taste and continue to add cream and salt & pepper in small increments until you reach desired consistency and taste.
