This was FANTASTIC! It's a totally different taste- WAY more tasty than plain old mashed potatoes. I followed the recipe EXACTLY, and my husband and I were practically licking the bowl clean and...

We loved this recipe! I had about 1/2 cup left, so when i made potato soup..I added that. Added a wonderfully different taste.

I didn't use carrot or brown sugar. I did add Parmesan, Italian herb seasoning and freshly ground black pepper. Fantastic!

Should have 10 stars!! V.V.Good!! I dbld. recipe & hubby & I ate it all.

Interesting taste combo... I doubled the potatoes, since they were smaller, as with the carrots, but otherwise kept the recipe as is. Great blend of flavors!
