Artichoke Mashed PotatoesPosted: November 19, 2011
It’s ridiculous how good these are. Two of my favorite vegetables in one dish. In the picture, this dish doesn’t look all that exciting, but it tastes wonderful. Definitely an easy way to dress up ordinary mashed potatoes. I did things a little different than the recipe states….I blended the artichoke hearts with a little milk in the cup attachment of my Braun hand mixer and then folded the artichoke puree into the potatoes that I had already mashed (with butter and more milk) with a hand held potato masher. If you like your potatoes a little creamier, use a hand mixer to whip the potatoes.
Artichoke Mashed Potatoes
6 large Idaho Potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 can artichoke hearts (non-marinated), drained
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup milk
salt & pepper to taste
Boil potatoes for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Drain.
In a large mixing bowl, pureé artichoke hearts with half the butter and milk, using a hand blender or mixer. Add potatoes and remaining butter and milk and mix until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
