How to Make Creamy Riced Potatoes


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds, crushed in a mortar
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds carrots, scrubbed and halved lengthwise
  • 3 fennel bulbs (1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1-inch-thick wedges
  • 1 1/2 pounds beets, peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick wedges
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a bowl, mix 6 tablespoons of the butter with 2 tablespoons of the mustard and the coriander. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. On a large rimmed baking sheet, combine the carrots and fennel. On another large rimmed baking sheet, arrange the beets. Dollop the butter over the vegetables on each baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Toss and rub to evenly coat. Roast for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally and rotating the sheets halfway through, until the vegetables are tender and caramelized.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of mustard. Dollop the butter over the warm vegetables and toss to evenly coat. Transfer the vegetables to a serving platter and garnish with the dill.

Review Body: made this for thanksgiving 2016, was fast and simple, and presented beautifully.  I agree with review above, cooking time was less than 40 min in a convection oven, and paid to flip them partway through.  Using a rainbow carrot mix made a big difference as well

Review Body: This recipe is a prime example of the whole being greater than  the sum of its parts!   I cooked the vegetables separately in 3 pans, as they all had different cooking times (and I definitely didn't cook them for 40 minutes).  Though I'm sure you could use an herb other than dill, the dill added an incredibly fresh and unexpected note to the entire dish, so I'll be sure to use it next time I make these.   So glad the staffer mentioned these on the contents page of the December issue, or I never would have seen them—thanks for a winner of a recipe!
