In a hurry or just don't feel like cooking like I felt today. I tried something new today & we actually liked it.

I used the reserved liquid from canned vegetables to make my instant mashed potatoes, & they were really quite flavorful.

Added some butter & chive after the 4 minutes were up, & less liquid than was required by the directions, & I got a more firmer texture of potatoes, plus they were very flavorful & tasty from the green Bean & corn liquid. I had never done that before today, but will definitely save the reserve liquid the next time I make instant mashed potatoes.

How to Make 4 Minute Mashed Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Add liquid from vegetables to a large measuring cup, I got 2 cups from 3 cans of vegetables. I used 2 green Beans & 1 can corn.
  2. Then add enough milk to measure a total of 3 cups. The package calls for 4 cups of water, but I opted to use milk and liquid from the vegetables, and one cup less so the potatoes would be more firm in texture.
  3. Pour liquid and potatoes into a medium microwaveable bowl, stir to blend them microwave for 4 minutes.
  4. Remove from microwave, add butter and chive and stir to blend. Serve while still hot. Quick fast and easy, & very simple, and taste good too.

All carbs are not evil; it's just that some of them should be eaten less frequently than others. It's not that hard to tell the difference between a good carb...
