MASHED GARLIC AND THYME PARSNIPS

Poor little parsnips. I feel like they get the shaft when it comes to using them in recipes.
I’ve used them in stew before and we all loved it, so I figured why not try it as a mash. The consistency was a dead ringer to regular mashed potatoes!
Parsnips taste like a mix between carrot, parsley, and potato. The smaller ones are more sweet and tender.
