No reviews


This root vegetable mash gets a colorful and nutritious boost from the variety of vegetables used. Carrots, sweet potatoes, and parsnips contribute to the sweetness, while rutabaga and garlic take the flavor over the top. Our family fell in love with this the first time they tried it. This dish offers a rich source of fiber, as well as containing a host of vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium, B vitamins and vitamin C. It’s the perfect complement to any meal and pairs particularly well with poultry. The best part, it looks so pretty on the dinner table!




  1. Peel and chop carrots, sweet potatoes, parsnips, and rutabaga into 1″ cubes
  2. Add broth, water, and three pinches of salt to a large saucepan.
  3. Combine carrots, sweet potatoes, parsnips, rutabaga, and garlic in a saucepan. Bring broth to a medium boil and simmer vegetables until tender, about 30 minutes.
  4. Strain vegetables, careful not to dispose of garlic.
  5. Transfer vegetables and garlic to a large mixing bowl. Add EVOO, salt, and pepper. Using a hand mixer, process vegetables until smooth. Serve immediately.
