Stuart’s Mashed Potatoes # 9

 

This recipe is from my friend and mashed potato maestro Stuart Farndell. All his mashes usually include sweet potatoes which add a hefty boost of vitamin C and carotenoids. After that, Stuart improvises, and what he comes up with his usually spuderific, like this gem.   

 

Ingredients

 

4 medium size potatoes, peeled and cut into halves or quarters
1 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into halves or quarters
3 tablespoons feta cheese
1 tablespoon butter or margarine (Stu used margarine)
8 garlic cloves, peeled

 

Directions

 

Boil white potatoes for ten minutes, then add sweet potatoes. Cook until tender.

 

As potatoes boil, sautee the cloves of garlic until brown and carmelized and tender.

 

When potatoes are ready, mash with garlic, feta and butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Serves six easily; more with smaller portions.  Pair with steak, chicken or pork or layer on a plate with colourful veggies on top.  (Tip: On how to choose a good potato, check out http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1608/is_4_19/ai_104682171/?tag=content;col1.
