Is it wrong to tell a half truth to your kids if it is for their own good? I make mashed potato but add carrot and pumpkin to make it healthier and just call it  special mashed potato.  They love it, and I love it too knowing they are getting extra serves of veggies.

Ingredients

4 Potatoes
2 Carrots
1/4 butternut pumpkin
150g milk

Method

Roughly chop veggies and place in thermomix bowl.  (There should be about 900g of veggies, but this doesn’t need to be exact).

Add milk and close lid.

Insert butterfly, add butter, and stop reverse.  Whip for 30 seconds at speed 4

For an added serve of veggies, place extra veggies in the Veroma and place on top of bowl while potatoes are cooking.
