Recipe by Jenny Sanders

This is a very intriguing dish. The flavours blend so well it is hard to identify any one of the componants; instead it seems like some new, mysterious veggie.

Soooo good! When I serve it, people think it tastes like the best mashed potatoes ever. Followed instructions exactly and you won't be disappointed. One of my favorite recipes.
