Roasted Garlic Autumn Root Vegetable Mash: I know the name’s a tongue twister—trying saying it three times fast!—but I figured “Orange Veggie Surprise” wouldn’t do this dish justice. If you’re too lazy to say its proper name, just call it R.G.A.R.V.M. for short.
Frankly, I don’t care what you call this crowd-pleasing Thanksgiving side. Just make it. This garlicky mash is a wonderful alternative to boring old mashed potatoes, and it’s packed with all the warm and rustic flavors of fall root vegetables. And trust me: no one (especially not your finicky kids) will be the wiser that you sneaked some parsnips onto their plate.
Added bonus: This is a perfect side to make in advance ’cause it reheats beautifully. Prep ahead, and you’ll have one less dish to worry about on Thanksgiving Day!
I’ll be posting a Nomtastic Paleo Thanksgiving Countdown Planner soon, so keep your eyes peeled. I promise you’ll dominate Turkey Day like a boss!
