Yesterday when I was making soup (a complete disaster and a whole other story!) I looked at some ingredients I had on the counter and thought… these could be really good together.  With a wing and a prayer, I whipped up this mash in a matter of minutes and it turned out to be pretty darn tasty!  I would recommend serving as a side dish or maybe with some sauteed veggies over it.  Enjoy!

Springtime Mash

Serves 2-4

What you’ll need:

3-4 large red potatoes, peeled (I like to leave some of the skin on if you do too that’s fine)

1 celery root, peeled and quartered

2 tbsp. vegan butter (like Earth Balance)

1/4 cup chopped watercress

salt and pepper

What you’ll do:

Boil the potatoes and celery root in a pot.  When fork tender, strain and return to the warm pot.  Add in the vegan butter and mash with a fork or potato masher.  For a smoother mash you can use an electric hand mixer.  When the right consistency, stir in the watercress and season with salt and pepper.  Serve warm.
