Broccoli Mash Potato

Mashing broccoli with cheese and potatoes might just be the trick to getting your kids to eat their veggies. Broccoli and potato are a great combination. This recipe works well as an accompaniment for grilled chicken or sautéed fish.


1 lb Yukon Gold potato, cut into wedges
¾ lb broccoli crowns, chopped (4 cups)
¾ cup shredded sharp chadder cheese
½ cup heated nonfat milk,
½ tsp salt freshly ground pepper to taste


Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large pot. Place potatoes in a steamer basket and steam for 10 minutes. Place broccoli on top, cover and steam until the potatoes and broccoli are tender, 6 to 8 minutes more.

Transfer the broccoli to a large bowl and coarsely mash with a potato masher. Add the potatoes, cheese, milk, salt and pepper and continue mashing to desired consistency. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
