I attended a meeting this weekend at which one of the covered dishes was
mashed potatoes with carrots. I don't know why I've never thought of
doing that, but tonight I did.
And as usual went a bit too far.
Instead of mashing all of my potatoes and carrots (which took 10 minutes
of steaming in the pressure cooker), I took about half of the goodies
and started to mash them in my food processor.
BING! (That's the sound of the bell going off in my head.) I added
water from the pressure cooker to cut the thickness of the mixture.
Then added some garlic powder, oregano, and a generous supply of
YES!!!! A nice creamy sauce!
I took about half of the potatoes and carrots, placed it on a plate and
poured a generous amound of the "sauce" over the veggies.
Back when I was a SADist, I adored thick creamy sauces on things like
fetticuni ala "heart attack on a plate." Can this sauce be thinned down
and spiced up enough to emulate that horror?
Methinks it can, but it will have to wait until I can eat flour and
In the meantime I plan to try it out as a soup tomorrow. I swear it has
the consistency and color of ch**se soup.
Recipe? I didn't write it down as I did it. It's one of those
off-the-cuff things that came as an inspiration...I'm delighted it did
and hope that some of you will too!
