Scale

Ingredients

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

1 pound Parsnips, cut into even, 1 inch pieces

5 cloves of Garlicwhole

1 teaspoon Fresh Thyme

1 can (13.5 oz) Light Coconut Milk

1/2 cup Water

1/2 teaspoon Salt

Instructions

  1. Place a medium-sized pot on the stove and set to medium/medium high heat. Add olive oil, parsnips, garlic, and thyme to the pot and allow ingredients to sear for about 7-10 minutes, only stirring once or twice.
  2. Add coconut milk, water, and salt to the pot and cover with lid. Bring to a light simmer, stirring occasionally (see note 1). Allow to cook for 10-15 minutes until parsnips are very fork tender.
  3. Mash your parsnips using a hand masher, food mill, or food processor (see note 2) and serve.

Notes

NOTE 1 – Make sure to keep your heat at a consistent light simmer. Boiling can cause your parsnips to overcook and/or let too much water evaporate, causing a dry mash.
