Easy, quick and yummy
Potatoes is one of the starches in our 7 day rotation. I try to stay with the Yellow Yukon potatoes as much as I can (if my very fuzzy brain serves me right, I think that particular potato *species* has a fairly low oxalate content).
Skin 6 to 7 medium sized Yellow Yukon potatoes
Half, and then quarter, and boil them in water until they are soft and easily break apart when you stick them with a fork
Drain most of the cooking water of the potatoes, but leave a little
Mash them up (you'll use that little bit of cooking water you left to make a smooth mixture)
Add olive oil, salt, pepper and parsley to taste.
These mashed potatoes also make a great base for Shepard's Pie. Yes, THAT will be a separate recipe post...(oh, I am SUCH a tease..)
