4 lbs. Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed

2 lbs. parsnips, peeled and chopped

3 sprigs fresh rosemary

3 cloves garlic, peeled

3 Tbsp. Green Valley Creamery Lactose-Free Butter

1 cup Green Valley Creamery Lactose-Free Greek Yogurt

Salt and fresh ground black pepper

2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Marvelous Mix-Ins and Toppers (choose one or more)

1/4 cup fresh minced chives

1/4 cup chopped parsley mixed with 1 Tbs. lemon zest

1/3 cup walnuts sautéed in olive oil, salt and black pepper

1/2 cup crispy shallots

4 strips crisp apple wood-smoked bacon, thinly sliced

1 cup thinly sliced greens (kale, spinach, chard) sautéed with garlic

2/3 cup chopped roasted red peppers, green olives and capers

  1. Place potatoes and parsnips in a large pot, cover with cold water and add rosemary, garlic and a generous teaspoon of salt.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer until the potatoes and parsnips are tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Drain the vegetables, discard rosemary and place vegetables back in the pot and cook over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes to remove any excess moisture.
  4. Remove from heat and mash with a potato masher or pastry blender. For an extra smooth mash, press through a potato ricer or food mill.
  5. Stir in the buttery spread until it melts, then stir in the yogurt. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
