creamy whipped parsnips

while you can't deny the deliciousness that are creamy mashed potatoes, they aren't something you are likely to eat daily, unless you're mr. handsome and then you could pretty much survive solely on the side dish alone.
but i figured out a way to make them a little healthier, hence we can have them more often, thanks to a good 'ol fashion swap out.
 enter...the parsnip.  
one of my favourite root vegetables, it lends itself well to roasting and mashing, making it a healthy side dish to accompany any main.  last night i went the mashed root, adding a little sour cream and butter to make them even better.

simple suppers are my jam!
