This was one of the "wow"-recipes of this world tour! We fell in love with the taste at first bite. What can I say - I'll make this again often for sure! Thanks for sharing :)

Excellent British recipe. The mashed potatoes came out nice and creamy. I love the step of heating the milk, it really works well for mashed potatoes. I enjoyed the addition of peas and mint for a nice change of pace from the ordinary mashed potatoes. Made for ZWT8 Great Britain region. Thanks!

What can I say....My all time 2 favourite vegetables, rolled into one. My DS & I always mix our pea's with my potatoes when they are served, and DH justs sit's and watches the 2 of us create this mashy mesh to eat and shakes his head in shame! lol
BUT now here is the recipe that does it for you!
I used minted peas, and some dried mint as I did not have any fresh mint, ohhhh and cream and followed the recipe as written......... Ohhhh so smooth and creamy and just divine!!!! DS and I adored these Boomette.
I will be making this recipe a lot more often now!
Thanks for another amazing recipe Boomette.

I had some fresh mint that I wasnt sure what to do with...so I made this recipe. Very easy to do, and a tasty side dish.

These are really good! I didn't have any fresh mint so used 1 teaspoon of dried mint. Otherwise, I made the recipe as specified. I served it with barbequed ribs. This is a dish that we will definitely enjoy again.

I'm trying to watch my fat intake so I cooked the potatoes in fat free chicken broth and used the same to warm up the peas and mint. A little dollop of butter and a shot of milk made them seem rich. I liked the peas and potato combo and the mint was a definite change. Actually, DH was so busy examining the new flavors and additions, he never noticed the lack of fat. ;-) Cool trick! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Great flavour and idea to serve with grilled lamb chops topped with mint sauce or jelly. All the family enjoyed this as part of a great weeknight dinner.

I made these last night. Because I was feeding my 8 month old twins some of it too I pureed the peas before adding them to the mash potatoes. The twins love mint but dont like peas. They gobbled this right down. I will admit green mash potatoes are not too appealing to the eye but the twins didnt care about the looks.

This is fabulous! I used four large russets that I peeled before boiling and once tender riced; Added 3/4 cup of cream, 1 cup peas, 1/4 cup mint right from the garden and 4 tablespoons of butter found a little dry so added some chicken stock to keep the fat down. Fabulous! Thanks for the comfort food!
