In This Recipe


  1. Peel and cube the potatoes and parsnips and combine with rutabaga and salt in a large soup pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook, uncovered, 15 minutes or until fork tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a heavy skillet, melt half of the butter over medium heat, add panko crumbs and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until toasted golden brown. Stir in horseradish; remove from heat.
  3. Drain vegetables and return them to the pot. Mash over low heat, gradually adding milk, pepper and remaining butter. Transfer to a big serving dish and sprinkle with panko crumbs.
