This makes a nice change from mashed potatoes, you may also oven-roast the veggies in place of boiling if desired. All tastes differ so you will need to experiment with amounts of vegetables, start with these amounts the first time you make this, the next time you make increase or decrease the veggies as desired, also adjust the roasted garlic puree to taste, or you may omit completely, you may roast your garlic bulb up to a day ahead in refrigerate. This recipe pairs well with a roasted chicken, turkey or a ham dinner :)

- 4 carrots, peeled and diced

- Season with seasoned salt or white salt to taste.
Wonderful! Need I say more? I made this with our pork roast tonight. I added rutabaga to this since DH and I LOVE rutabagas. And, I added minced garlic to the cooking water because otherwise it is too overpowering for DH. I left out the milk in this DH can't have dairy. I did use the chicken broth to boil the veggies in. It sure is a pretty color when all done too. Thanks Kittencal for posting such a great recipe.
