Instead of mashed potatoes, try this sweet, lower-calorie puree, which needs only a bit of butter.

So delicious as is. You don't even need the butter if you're making a vegan version. Tip: Don't be alarmed if the water does not seem like enough at first. Lots of moisture gets released from the apples. Just keep it covered and you'll be fine.

Other notes: I used fuji apples & tripled the recipe. Produced a little over 7 cups of mash.

I've looked at a lot of different recipes (search "apple parsnip puree"), but this was the simplest. And I have no regrets: final dish is fragrant and hands-down delicious. Couple of tips: 1) Add an extra apple if you like it sweeter, 2) After the food processor, pass the mash through a sieve if you'd like it extra smooth (this will remove any hard/stringy bits), 3) At the end, when you're checking for seasoning, add a tiny amount of heavy cream for a more mellow parsnip flavor.

I doubled this recipe and used Cortland apples. Love it. A hint of sweetness, but not too sweet. Served with a roasted chicken, but I'm looking forward to eating leftovers as a snack between meals. Probably will do this at Thanksgiving, too
