""Root vegies mashed with Chevre cheese. Very good in place of plain mashed potatoes. Try to find a stronger flavor chevre (the more aged, the stronger). If you prefer a creamier texture, add more chevre or some milk while mashing. This is good with the holiday turkey."

Step 1

Peel and trim all vegetables, and cube in 1-inch pieces.

Step 2

Bring large pot of water to boil, and add vegetables. Cook until just tender, about 15 minutes

Step 3

Drain and return to pan. Add chevre and butter and mash until desired consistency. (I like mine a little lumpy).

Step 4

Stir in chives and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring back to heat over medium burner, stirring to keep from sticking.

Step 5

Serve.

Fantastic! I love root vegetables, and this recipe incorporated all my favorites! No one flavor is overwhelming, and I loved how the tangy goat cheese perfectly offset the sweetness of the delicious parsnips! I think this recipe would make believers out of people that say they don't like turnips and rutabagas. This is a keeper - thanks so much for posting!
