Reviews for Whipped Potatoes and Carrots
"My mother did this 40 some odd yrs. ago to get the kids to eat more vegtables. She told them it was special colored Mash Potatoes. They loved them."
"Do these need to be made with russet or red potatoes or can I use sweet potatoes?"
"This is so good. My mother used to make it for us when we were kids. It never fails to please!"
"This recipe has a nice flavor for fewer calories than traditional mashed potatoes. The texture is a bit less substantial feeling, but I liked the change.If it's not critical to your diet, these are much improved by adding 1 more Tbs butter, and a little more salt. Since we tend to like our potatoes with more seasoning, I also added garlic powder and onion powder, omitting nutmeg.I will definitely make this again, but with the extra butter and seasonings. This is a good recipe anyway, but for someone needing to cut calories, this recipe is definitely great."
