If you have wondered what the creamiest, most delicious side dish in the world is, wonder no longer! It's parsnip puree with sauteed Brussels sprouts. (from the garden, of course. I may have pulled it out, but we still have a whole mess of stuff to eat!)
Growing up, one of my favorite foods in the world was mashed potatoes, but after having this I might be ready to trade them in for parsnip puree.
Recipe here. (originally from Gourmet. sigh.)
