Mashed potatoes are a staple at the Thanksgiving table. But we want to put a spin on this classic simple dish, and thought about the under-utilized parsnips. Parsnips are a root vegetable that look like white carrots, have a natural sweetness like carrots and creamy like potatoes. They are the perfect vegetable for mixing into your mashed potatoes this holiday season.
We went a step further and top the parsnip mashed potatoes with a coffee-infused gravy. Full of earthy roundness and a medium heat level, this gravy might just become your new holiday favorite!
