I don’t like mashed potato, and somebody thinks it’s blasphemy. It’s a shame, I don’t really like anything potato except for French fries… oh, and maybe hash browns. So instead of mashed potato, I make mashed pumpkin to go with a dish like grilled steak or baked chicken. Pumpkin is so light, sweet, healthy, full
