For every recipe version: Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes; drain and return to the pot.



Meanwhile purée the second vegetable from the ingredient list of the mashed potato recipe of your choice: spinach, carrots or peas. Purée in a food processor until completely smooth.



For every recipe version: Mash potatoes with a potato masher or ricer. Mix in puréed vegetables and remaining ingredients from the recipe version of your choice. Warm over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Notes

What could be a better side dish for a harvest meal than mashed potatoes? Renditions of these fluffy staples get their added color – along with the benefit of added nutrition – from puréed, canned spinach, canned carrots or canned peas.
