I have found that adding a little bit of grated nutmeg makes your mashed potatoes smashing! I cannot believe how just a tiny bit of this incredible nut can make your dishes so good. To serve with the mashed potatoes, I cooked creamed spinach and peas. I have loved creamed spinach for years and adding peas to this meal, makes it even more filling.
serves 4-6 people
Preparation time: 30 minutes.
- 3 ⅓ lbs / 1 ½ kg potatoes
- 1 cup / 250 ml vegan milk or vegan cream and water mix
- ½ tsp grated nutmeg
- 1 tsp salt
Peel the potatoes and cut the bigger ones into half. Pour enough water over the potatoes so they will be covered. Boil until the potatoes are completely soft. In the meantime, you can cook the creamed spinach and peas. When the potatoes are soft, drain them. Mix the milk or cream with grated nutmeg and salt and pour it over the potatoes. Mash the potatoes until fluffy.
