Sweet and earthy parsnips make a great addition to mashed potatoes. Not only do they add another layer of flavor to our favorite spuds, but they also can handle vigorous mashing without becoming gluey. Sour cream and butter add creaminess and tanginess, while a shower of chives adds a fresh pop of color and flavor. This recipe can easily be doubled for a crowd; divide the parsnips and potatoes between 2 Suvie pans.
