Altered ingredient amounts. A good, basic recipe. I left out the milk and it was still a bit watery. Easy, one pot dish. - 24 Jul 2008


Glad I found this...I am trying to cut back on potatoes one of my faves, so I tried these and they were just as good as mashed potatoes. They did seem to drain "water" after I mashed them but I just stirred them up again. Very good recipe and will be making it lots more. - 24 Jul 2008


Very nice. I added potatoes as well and mashed with butter when the veggies were cooked, but then allowed to cool. I then heated them through again and added the milk at that point, stirring all the time. It just takes away some of the excess liquid. - 01 Jan 2009
