Mashed Potatoes, Beets, Onions, Allspice Preparation:
This recipe makes 8-10 servings.
Begin by washing, peeling, and cleaning the potatoes, beets (if using fresh), and onions.
Place the fresh veggies in a large covered glass or ceramic dish and bake in the microwave oven until tender. Or, the ingredients can be cooked in a water in a pot on the stovetop.
When the potatoes, beets (if using fresh), and onions are cooked, remove from the oven, and place onions and beets in the container of a high speed blender, along with some of the liquid remaining in the baking dish or pot to aid in the blending process. Add the allspice, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the contents are smooth.
Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl that is suitable for mashing, and add the contents from the blender. Mash the potatoes with your Smood, or other potato masher, to the desired consistency. Mix occasionally with a spoon to make sure that the ingredients are uniformly mixed. If the ingredients are too stiff, add a little soy milk or rice milk to bring to the desired consistency.
Serve and enjoy as is or on a plate with other vegan recipes, such as the one above with roasted zucchini squash strips.
