40 min


Place potatoes and parsnips and garlic clove in a large stockpot, then cover with water by 2 inches, salt generously and bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and cook until fork-tender — about 20 minutes.

Heat the milk and butter in a small saucepan over low heat until just steaming.

Drain the potatoes and parsnips and return to pot. Add milk and butter mixture.

Add sour cream and mash with a potato masher until desired consistency, making sure to mash the garlic in well.

Add salt to taste, then stir with a fork to fluff and serve.
