Mashed potatoes are wonderfully comforting at any time of year. This classic dish combines potato, sweet potato, and pumpkin for a lighter three-vegetable version mash, which is delicious alongside our low-calorie mushroom stroganoff for the ultimate winter warmer meal.
Low-Calorie Vegetable Mash Recipe
- 1 medium potato, washed, peeled and diced
- 150 g sweet potato, washed, peeled and diced
- 150 g pumpkin, washed, peeled and diced
- Salt and pepper to taste
Start by washing, peeling, and dicing the vegetables. Place the diced potatoes and pumpkin in a microwave-safe dish, cover, and microwave for 12 minutes.
Remove the bowl from the microwave and carefully drain any liquid, then pour the vegetables into a large bowl.
Mash the vegetables with a potato masher, then whip the potatoes and pumpkin with a spoon until you have a smooth texture.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Optional: you could turn the dish into garlic mash by adding a peeled clove of garlic to the microwavable dish, heating it along with the vegetables.
