Mashed Parsnip with Vegan Miso Gravy

Mashed Parsnip & Vegan Miso Gravy

Knowing how it is to feel left out and awkward at a dinner party or gathering with not a single gluten-free option to choose from, I’m more mindful these days to consider it’s also likely that at least a few of my guests will prefer vegan options.  Mashed Parsnip with Vegan Miso Gravy is an easy side dish you can offer along with a protein-rich main course such as Roasted Carrots with Lentils and Tahini.

This dish can be whipped up in no time and is very good whether you’re vegan or not!

  • Set parsnips in a steamer over boiling water and cover.  Steam for about 8 minutes or until tender.  Drain and transfer to a bowl.  Add almond milk and mash with a fork until smooth and combined.  Set aside.
  • Set a saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add water, miso paste, oat flour, garlic powder, and salt.  Whisk to combine and remove any lumps.
  • Bring to a simmer and add tapioca flour while continuing to whisk.  Let simmer for at least 5 to 10 minutes, then remove from heat.  The gravy will thicken as it cools.
  • Divide mashed parsnips and pour the desired amount of gravy over top.


Recipe Notes/Suggestions
Serve with:  Rotisserie Chicken, Ginger Beef Stir Fry, Herbed Pork Roast, Roasted Carrots with Lentils & Tahini
Leftovers:  Refrigerate in an airtight container (with or without gravy) up to 3 days, or freeze the mashed parsnip and gravy in separate containers.
