Coconut Milk Smashed Root Vegetables

Active Time: 10 minutes   |   Total Time: 25 minutes   |   Serves 6  |  Vegan  |  Gluten Free

  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 ounces parsnips, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 8 ounces carrots, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 4 ounces rutabaga or turnip, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 1¼ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 chives, snipped

Add the sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots, and rutabaga to a large pot and fill with cold water to cover by 1 inch. Place over high heat and let come to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the vegetables are very tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, heat the coconut and ginger in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, turn off the heat and let steep.

Return the vegetables to the pot and mash with a potato masher. Use tongs to discard the ginger then pour in the coconut milk and add the salt. Mash together. Serve topped with the chives.
