Spinach and Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potato and Spinach:

This is my go to recipe. Simple ingredients like potatoes, bodek (checked for bugs) spinach and cheese are my staples in my house. When my son was small, he loved it as his Thursday night milchig milk meal of choice because Friday nights for us are always so much meat.

5 medium potatoes

2 cubes bodek spinach

1 cup milk (homo makes it creamier)

8 slices white cheese

1 tsp butter or canola oil

1/4 tsp salt

Dash of pepper

Peel and dice potatoes into quarters. Add water to a medium sauce pan along with potatoes. Bring potatoes to boil and turn down to medium heat. Simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are soft when pierced with a fork. Drain but don’t rinse because you want the starch. Add the milk and butter or oil and mash. Microwave spinach and add to saucepan. Mix. Take slices of cheese and stir into potato mixture while they are still hot to melt the cheese. Add salt and pepper and stir once more. Makes 4-5 servings

(this recipe was inspired by a friend of mine in Toronto who taught me the basics about it and I took it and changed it up a bit. Thanks Mrs C Nussbaum!)
