Vegan Mashed Parsnips & Potatoes With Mushroom Gravy

Vegan Mashed Parsnips & Potatoes With Mushroom Gravy
In This Article

Parsnips add a sweet, nutty flavor to mashed potatoes and provide more B and K vitamins than potatoes alone. Be sure to choose thinner, younger parsnips; older parsnips tend to have a woody core that won’t mash up as smoothy. We pair the fluffy mash with an umami-rich mushroom gravy for a plant-based comfort food fix.

Wild-grown mushrooms contain a healthy dose of vitamin D, while traditional store-bought mushrooms are generally grown indoors and contain little to no vitamin D, unless the manufacturer exposes them to UV light. Look for mushrooms that say “UV-treated” or “rich in vitamin D.”
