Mashed Parsnips

4-5 parsnips, washed and cut into chunks
1 Tbsp. salt (plus more to taste)
2 Tbsp. butter (plus more to taste)
1/8-1/4 c. (soy) milk
4 tsp. chopped garlic
A few grinds of fresh cracked black pepper

Place the chopped parsnips in a pot and cover with water. Add salt and bring to boil. Boil until parsnips are so soft that they fall apart when you try to stab them with a fork, around 15 minutes. Once parsnips are beginning to fall apart easily, drain well (otherwise your final product might be watery). Mash the parsnips, adding butter, soy milk, and garlic as you go. Grind in some pepper. Taste. Add more butter, garlic, or salt as necessary.
