Mashed Potatoes with Spinach

One never needs an excuse to make mashed potatoes, the ultimate comfort food, in my opinion.  Adding spinach just makes it even more tempting.  Mashed potatoes goes with anything.

I remember as a child, when I didn't feel well, my mother made mashed potatoes and carrots.  For years, I say that I should make it and I don't.  I think, although I loved it, it brings back memories of being under the weather.

Mashed Potatoes and Spinach


4 potatoes, peeled
1⁄2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons  butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
3 cups Baby Spinach 


Cut potatoes into quarters.

Cover potatoes with salted cold water by 1 inch in a large saucepan and simmer, uncovered, until tender, 15 - 20 minutes.

In a small saucepan place sour cream, butter and pepper and bring to a simmer.

Drain potatoes.

Mash potatoes.

Stir spinach into warm cream sauce,

Mash potatoes again with the cream sauce and spinach.

Eat and enjoy.
