A rich and sophisticated update on mashed potatoes, with a hint of sweetness from the fennel.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 medium fennel bulb, chopped
Salt and pepper (to taste)
6 medium parsnips, peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 medium potato, peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces
2 cups low-sodium vegetable stock or broth
2 cups water
Butter (to taste)
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add onion, fennel, and a little salt and pepper. Cover and gently cook until vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes (do not brown). Add parsnips, potato, stock or broth, and water. Bring to a gentle boil and simmer, partially covered, until tender, about 20 minutes.
Strain vegetables. Purée in batches in a food processor until smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt, pepper, and a little more butter to taste.
