Move over potatoes, these Low FODMAP Mashed Parsnips are ready to shine! This simple and scrumptious side dish is a delicious way to get a healthy dose of starchy carbs.



Optional garnish: Snipped chives


  1. Place parsnip pieces in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Boil over medium-high heat until the water has evaporated, about 15 minutes.
  2. Using a fork (or potato masher), mash parsnips with garlic-infused olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Serve warm topped with optional snipped chives. 


Make it creamier? Consider mashing in low FODMAP milk, like lactose-free cow’s milk or unsweetened almond milk.
