    Hi Ladies
    reading the post below about broken masher, just wondered what everyone has with their mashed potato? And what they add to it(if anything) when making it, as when i make mine it always tastes a bit lumpy and a bit tasteless without butter
    Thanks in advance for any tips

    On the rare occasions I do 'real' mash I find it's lovely with a few sprays of buttery frylight,and a good dollop of fromage frais. If you've got a few syns to use, I think you can't beat low fat creme fraiche through it too. Yum!

    I also add, depending on mood, schwartz 3 mustard mix, any mixed herbs, and sometimes even an egg.

    I've just had mashed carrot, swede and sweet potato with 3 laughing cow lights in it - yum! If I'm doing a red day I leave out the sweet potato. Turnip makes vegetable mash creamier and that's superfree.
    I find that the laughing cow works well with making normal mash smoother too.

    I have used a ricer for making mash and you really dont have to add much to it - i find its ok with just a bit of salt and pepper
