Vegan “buttery” mashed UNpotatoes



  • 1 big ‘ol parsnip (check out the fatty below)
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower florets (approx 1 medium sized head)
  • 1/4 cup butternut squash (approx 4 large chunks)
  • 1 tsp miso paste (optional)
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup nondairy milk (I’m a fan of rice milk or coconut milk)
  • salt & pepper to taste



First peel the parsnip (I don’t go out of my way to get all the exterior off, just a loose skinning to get off the major ickies). 


Then, chop and steam the crap out of the veggies (the mushier they are, the easier the blend). 


Then add to blender (I use my magic bullet) along with the nondairy milk of choice (I use plain coconut milk), miso paste, nutritional yeast, salt & pepper

Blend blend blend and voila!


Easy peasy creamy, buttery mashed potatoes (but without cream, butter, or potatoes – duh).

    This looks great! I’ve loved mashers since I was a kid but rarely eat them because of how unhealthy they can be, but this sounds like an awesome substitute! Thanks for the recipe :)

    Gah, that looks amazing! Seriously, that mash looks phenom…pretty sure I have to try this asap! Thanks for such a great idea!

    OK, this is quite possibly the most amazing recipe I’ve come across in a long time. I love parsnips, butternut squash, miso, and So Delicious coconut milk beverages! And all in one dish? That sounds and looks crazy delicious! No added fat, either? I am so making this tonight!

    This totally looks fingerlicking good…mmmm…A mi me gusta!

    Confession, I don’t think I’ve even had parsnips. It looks familiar, but since I don’t know how some veggies are translated in English from Kapampangan or Tagalog, I think it’s still safe to say, I’ve never tried it. Maybe I’ll be adventurous…haha

    I LOVE root vegetable mash! Good job. Hadn’t thought of adding the nutritional yeast though. I know what I’m having with one of my dinners this week…
