Mid-week mash – creamy avocado mustard mashed potatoes

Bit low on veg at the moment, but I still have several avocados left. I’d been thinking about mash since I saw a shepherds pie pizza on the Get Scorned blog – http://comesconewithme.com/2013/09/17/the-art-of-shepherds-pie-pizza-recipe-more-from-the-bake-and-destroy-blogtour/ so it was only a matter of time before I got my spuds out.

Hastily slicing some Lady Balfour into a pan of lightly salted boiling water without bothering to peel them, I impatiently awaited the moment I could crush their gentle spirits, along with a nice ripe avocado, English mustard and a pinch of smoked sea salt.


Once that was taken care of i hastily coated some slices of tofu in Marigold bouillon powder and smoked paprika and while those were pan-frying, sliced up a bit of cabbage and cooked it briefly with a bit of water, dash of cider vinegar and a few drops of soya sauce.


May seem like a strange mix but it certainly hit the spot! I don’t usually add fat to mashed potato, generally liking it just mashed with a bit of the cooking water and some salt, pepper and mustard, but the avocado worked excellently, making this creamy, comforting and subtly tasty.

    Oh man. Those potatoes look amazing. Avocado mashed on toast with a drizzle of marmite and a couple of grinds of black pepper is one of my favorite breakfasts. This has me thinking that these mashers would welcome a few lines of marmite over top. I can’t wait to make these!


  2. I adore both potatoes and avocados. Pretty sure I would be addicted to these immediately.

    I put avocado in everything, but never thought to try it with mashed potatoes. I bet that would make a good enchilada filling….Thanks for the inspiration!
