Slow Cooker Mashed Parsnips & Sweet Potatoes at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.com

They may say that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but I think it’s Thanksgiving. Of course, that’s because I love to cook and eat! With less than a week to go, I’m sure you’re planning the logistics of the meal and wondering how you’re going to manage to cook everything with limited stove and cooktop space.

That’s where having a slow cooker comes in handy. Why not make a few dishes, like my Slow Cooker Mashed Parsnips & Sweet Potatoes, in your Crock-Pot? That way you’re not only freeing up space, but you’re guaranteed to have warm mash right up until serving time all the way until you serve seconds and thirds!

This healthy mashed recipe features two of my favorites – parsnips and sweet potatoes. Many folks find sweet potatoes a little too sweet. Parsnips are sweet, but not overly so. With a ratio of 2:1 (more parsnips to sweet potatoes) you have the gorgeousness of the sweet potato color without serving a dessert-y type side dish.

This mashed potato dish is made even more healthy by forgoing any cream or milk. No point really as the water the vegetables are cooked in is all you need. Plus, with the addition of the new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!®, instead of butter, it’s even healthier!
