This is an absolute favorite! A vegan version can be made by replacing the curry paste with curry powder; simply do so to taste. You can also use Earth Balance instead of butter (though I prefer butter). I imagine coconut oil could be a healthier alternative to Earth Balance (seed oils make the body retain fat) but I haven't tried that yet. Even though I made this to give our vegan family members variety, everyone in the family gobbled it up!

These are some of the best mashed potatoes I ever had. They're savory, with a subtle sweetness and spiciness. I can't get enough of these and am looking forward to introducing them to friends at Thanksgiving. (Fyi, when I made this recipe, I reduced both the amount of butter and maple syrup, and they were still delicious). Note: This is NOT a dessert, so if that's what you're looking for, you probably want a different recipe.

This is now a side-dish tradition in my family. Made it in 2011 for the third or fourth Thanksgiving and, as usual, everyone loved its sweet-but-not-too and hot-but-not-too contrasting flavors. Definitely recommend using a ricer for the best consistency.
