Instant Pot Autumn Mash

I love me some mashed potatoes. Those rich creamy carbs that just melt away on your tongue… You know what I’m talking about. Well I was excited when i came upon this variation of one of my favorite dishes.

The Autumn mash is a wonderful adaption of mashed potatoes. Using mostly parsnips, carrots, and cauliflower it doesn’t hold anything back in terms of flavor. It’s hard to describe, but I feel that with the addition of the parsnips that it really add depth to what would otherwise just be mashed veggies.
