Potato Zucchini Mash

Potato Zucchini Mash | The Gluten-Free Homemaker
If you are looking for a way to get vegetables into your picky eaters, here’s one way that might work.  My family asked what the green flecks were in the potatoes, but nobody complained.  One didn’t particularly care for the onion, but another really liked the onion.  The zucchini didn’t bother anybody.
Since the zucchini gets cooked and mashed, it’s fine to use a zucchini that has gotten too large for other eating.  That’s what I did.  I did, however, remove the middle seed section of the zucchini.  That’s up to you.

Potato Zucchini Mash
Recipe type: Side Dish
  • 3 pounds potatoes
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 cups chopped zucchini
  • ⅓ cup chopped green onion
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Peel, cook, and drain potatoes.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, combine the milk, zucchini, and green onion in a small saucepan. Heat to a simmer, cover and cook 5 – 10 minutes until the zucchini is soft.
  3. Use a hand masher to mash the zucchini mixture. Add this along with salt and pepper to the potatoes and mash the potatoes with a hand masher or electric mixer.

    What a great idea! I would have never thought to add zucchini to my potatoes. Fortunately, we don't have to hide zucchini – we all love it! – http://www.delightfulcountrycookin.com

    Wonder if this would work on my kids! My husband would turn his nose up – but then again, he likes plain, no skins, no lumps, mashed potatoes. Yawn!

  7. Lovely! I’ll trying this with Cauliflower in for the potatoes to keep it low carb!
