A rich and sophisticated update on mashed potatoes, with a hint of sweetness from the fennel.

  1. Heat oil or melt 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.
  2. Strain vegetables. Purée in batches in a food processor until smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt, pepper, and a little more oil or butter to taste.
