Prep The Vegetables

Scrub potatoes (no need to peel), peel parsnips, turnips and celeriac. Roughly chop all to approximately the same size. Put veggies and peeled cloves of garlic in pot and cover with water by 2 inches.

Mash The Vegetables

Drain vegetables, reserving 1/4 cup cooking liquid. Put cooked veggies back into pot and use a potato masher to evenly mash. I like to leave some chunks. If you like really smooth mashed potatoes, use an immersion blender.

Season The Potatoes

Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle S+P onto mashed potatoes, continuing to mash/blend. If potatoes still seem dry, use cooking liquid 1 Tablespoon at a time. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt/pepper as needed.
