Mashed Potatoes with Carrots

Rated

Ingredients

1 lb red-skinned potatoes
1/2 lb carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
1 tablespoon half-and-half
1 tablespoon butter, to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, to taste
2 tbsp chopped parsley or dill

Preparation

Steam the potatoes in their jackets until very tender, about 20 minutes. Set aside. Steam the carrots until they're tender, about 15 minutes.

Grasp the hot potatoes in a towel and slip off their skins. Put them in a bowl with the carrots and mash to a purée, adding enough milk, light cream, or even the cooking liquid to lighten the mixture. Stir in butter to taste, season with salt and pepper, and stir in all but a teaspoon or so of the parsley or dill. Smooth the purée into a dish and sprinkle the rest of the chopped herb on top.
