Michael made the mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving and I have to say they may have been my favorite dish. See his recipe below.
3 large russet potatoes (or about 6 small potatoes), peeled and cut into chunks
1/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup soy milk
salt and ground black pepper to taste
In a large pot bring water to a boil, add the potatoes, cover, and simmer until a fork is easily inserted, about 15 or 25 minutes. Drain, and return the potatoes to the pot.
Mash the potatoes with a potato masher until a chunk consistency, then add the margarine and milk. Continue to mash to consistency of choice. Stir in the salt and black pepper until evenly distributed.
