  • 4 Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces (6 cups)
  • 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (2 cups)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. Place potatoes, carrots, and garlic in a medium saucepan. Cover with water. Add a large pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, and cook until completely tender, about 20 minutes.

  2. Drain vegetables, reserving 3/4 cup cooking liquid. Return all but 1/4 cup liquid to pot. Add milk and butter, and season with salt and pepper. Mash until smooth, adding remaining liquid to desired consistency.
