 Ingredients List

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 large white onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3 baking potatoes (such as Yukon gold, about 2 lb), peeled and cubed
  • 6 parsnips (about 1 lb), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth, heated
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 3 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped

 Directions

1. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat; reduce to medium. Cook onions with sugar and salt, stirring occasionally, until onions brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

2. Add a few tbsp water as you cook to keep onions from sticking or burning. Fill a medium stockpot 3/4 full with cold water. Add potatoes and parsnips; bring to a boil over high heat.

3. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes and parsnips are fork-tender, 20 to 25 minutes, then drain. Beat 1/4 of potato-parsnip mixture and 3 oz broth in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.

4. Repeat, alternating between potato-parsnip mixture and broth, until you've incorporated all. Fold in onions, cheese and thyme, and serve.
