Saint Patrick's Green Mashed Potatoes (Vegan Friendly)
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
7 ingredients
4-6 servings
Found on the blog Psst-you could "sneak" in a small parsnip or two for added nutrition and the kiddos would never suspect. My two gold coins worth. No green dye was used in the preparation of this recipe-lucky you! Please *NOTE*: the site is not working properly and I have been unable to add this ingredient to the list: 4 tablespoons sour cream (or substitute plain yogurt, creme fraiche, [soy] mayonnaise, cream cheese, etc.) A sprinkle of fresh or dried parsley either mixed into the potatoes or garnished on top would make a nice final touch and maintain the spirit of the green theme!
