Mint and Green Pea Mash

Smooth and creamy mashed potato is a staple side dish in our house as it accompanies anything but having the Quick Sausage Casserole for dinner I decided to take up the suggestion in the cookbook and try a different variation of the trusty mashed potato.

Tasty and colourful this mash sure packed a punch with a creamy minty flavour.  And it was just as easy as normal mash to make.
