1 cup parsnips, peeled and sliced
1 cup turnips, sliced
½ cup onions, chopped
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Spray 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
Clean, peel, and slice potatoes, sweet potatoes, parsnips, and turnips; combine. Chop onions and set aside.
In small saucepan, melt butter; add flour, salt, and pepper to make a roux. Gradually stir in milk, cooking over low heat; stir well with wire whisk.
