Recipe: Mashed Potatoes with Something Extra!

This is our last recipe of the year - we cannot wait to see you Thursday! Today we ask, why not add a nutritious twist (pumpkin) to your classic mashed potatoes?

  1. 1 15-oz can pumpkin puree
  2. 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  3. 2 tsp fresh thyme
  4. 8 Yukon gold potatoes, diced
  5. 3/4 cup milk
  6. 4 Tbsp butter
  7. 1 tsp salt
  8. 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  9. 1/4 tsp pepper
  1. In a small bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, garlic and thyme.
  2. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and reserve 1 cup of cooking water. Return potatoes to the pot.
  3. Mash the potatoes until smooth and then stir the butter in. Add the milk and continue mashing, then add 1/2 cup of cooking water at a time until smooth. Season with salt, garlic powder, and pepper.
  4. Place the potatoes in a serving dish, and add the pumpkin mixture and fold in, creating swirls.
  5. Garnish with extra thyme.
