Golden Mashed Potatoes

When making mashed potatoes, add a couple of handfuls of shredded carrots to the raw potatoes in the pan. This is a wonderful, nutritious addition that is tasty and colorful. My kids ask for this. If you don't have a shredder, just chop the carrots small.

You can also add some chopped up turnip. Everything mashes up together so you get the added nutrients but not a big change in appearance or taste.
