  • 8 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces (4 cups)
  • 2-3 medium parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces (2 cups)

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place carrots and parsnips in a large saucepan. Add water to cover and bring to a boil. Boil until very tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain well and return to the pan.
  2. Use a potato masher or ricer to finely mash the carrots and parsnips (see Tip). Add sour cream, 2 tablespoons chives, milk, butter, salt and pepper. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring, until heated through. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon chives.
  • Tip: For a smoother consistency, process the vegetables in a food processor.
