  1. Place the parsnips and potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Add salt to taste.
  2. Bring the pot to boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer. After 15 minutes, poke the vegetables with a fork to test if they are tender. When vegetables yield easily with a fork, drain in a large colander.
  3. In a large bowl, mash the vegetables with a potato masher or electric mixer until smooth.
  4. Season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve warm.
