Cauliflower With a Kick

Mashing cauliflower with a pleasantly sweet parsnip creates a surprisingly delicious side dish.


  • 1 head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 1 parsnip, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add cauliflower and parsnips, recover, and steam until soft, about 15 minutes.
  2. Drain the vegetables. Mash using a hand masher or electric mixer. Gradually add milk and butter and mash to desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper; serve warm.
