Dom’s Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes
This is a kinda sorta version of the type of mashed potatoes that my grandma would make, it’s cheap & loving olive oil I really enjoy it. I also borrowed a page from Shu’s Playbook & boiled & mashed onion (her addition) & celery (my addition) with the potatoes but I actually used some of the frozen onion scraps (trimmed of their inedible portions) & celery from my brimming stock bags but in the ingredients section I just mentioned regular values. I cooked it in my much beloved pressure cooker; to convert to a normal pot just double the time, of course boiling stuff is pretty easy so I’m sure that you’ll figure it out.
3 pounds potatoes, any kind, cut to even sized pieces (I like to leave the skins on but your kitchen your rules)
2 medium onions cut in half
4 stalks of celery (preferably the inner portion with the leaves)
Salt 2 tablespoons
4 tablespoons olive oil
garlic powder to taste,
pepper to taste,
1 cup of milk,
1 tablespoon butter,
Pretty simple toss all the vegetables in your pressure cooker (or pot), add a couple of tablespoons of salt & a shake of soy, add just enough water to cover then bring to a boil. Once the mix is boiling affix the lid of your cooker and boil at medium high for 25 minutes. Drain the mixture add the olive oil, milk, butter & the rest of the spices and assault viciously with your trusty potato masher, the onion & celery will mash as easily as the potatoes and feel free to season or customize to your heart’s content.
