Special diet :


2 lbs (1 kg) Yukon Gold potatoes (about 4 large), peeled and cut into chunks
1 lb (500 g) each par­snips and carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
¾ cup (175 mL) milk, hot
2 tbsp (25 mL) butter or olive oil 1 tsp (5 mL) salt, or to taste


Variation: You can switch things up by using ingredients like sweet potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes as well.

Bonnie says: Mashed potatoes become much more interesting when mixed with other root vegetables. The combination of potatoes, parsnips and carrots is especially colourful and delicious, but sweet potatoes, celeriac and Jerusalem artichokes work well, too.
