Getting Green with Food

My attempt at green food for St. Patty's Day. What did you do to celebrate?

Green Mashed Potatoes
Six potatoes, diced and cooked
1/4 cup butter
1/4-1/2 cup milk(whatever kind you have on hand.  I used unsweetened coconut milk)
A big handful of spinach, blanched and pureed

Add all ingredients, and mash with a masher.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

We love mashed potatoes at our house, and I add spinach to everything.  So this was a perfect fit for our house.  I paired it with leftover grilled steak and homemade sauerkraut (Post about that coming up soon!)

Shamrock Shake, the healthy way!
Leftover spinach puree from recipe above (or about 1/4 cup)
A couple of scoops of your favorite vanilla ice cream
A splash of mint extract (careful-- a little goes a long way!)

Blend ingredients. Feed some to small children.  Save most of it for the adults!

  1. You are so funny! OK, tomorrow night I am making your green mash potatoes with organic chicken from a friend's farm.
