Helpful Equipment

Hand mixer

Directions

1) Peel your roots and chop them into 1 inch cubes.

2) Boil in lightly salted water until the roots are tender, about 10 minutes.

3) Drain roots, add in dairy, and mash with a fork, masher, and/or hand mixer until the mash gets to the consistency you want.  It won’t get perfectly creamy so don’t worry about it.

4) Season with salt and pepper and serve with gravy or a slow cooked protein.
