Even youngsters will love this dish, an unexpected way to enjoy a whole cup of broccoli.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Yukon Gold or other yellow-fleshed potatoes, peeled
  • 4 cups medium broccoli florets
  • 1 leek, white part only, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup low-fat (1%) milk
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mace

Directions:

Place the potatoes in a deep saucepan and cover with cold water to a depth of 2". Cook uncovered over high heat until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a knife, about 20 minutes.

While the potatoes cook, steam the broccoli and leek until the broccoli is very soft, about 15 minutes. Drain in a colander.

Drain the potatoes and place them in a deep bowl. Using a sturdy fork, mash the potatoes into roughly 1" chunks. Add the broccoli and leek, mashing until only small lumps of the broccoli remain. Add the milk, 2 tablespoons at a time, mashing until the texture is pleasing to you. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat until it is golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes, taking care it does not burn. Stir in the mace.

To serve, spoon the smashed potatoes into a serving bowl. With the back of the spoon, smooth the top, leaving several shallow indentations. Drizzle the butter, letting it pool in the hollows. Serve immediately.

Food Fact

Yellow-fleshed potatoes get their color from carotenoids.
