This recipe makes 8-10 servings.
Begin by washing, peeling, and cleaning the potatoes, beets (if using fresh), and onions.
Place the fresh veggies in a large covered glass or ceramic dish and bake in the microwave oven until tender. Or, the ingredients can be cooked in a water in a pot on the stovetop.
When the potatoes, beets (if using fresh), and onions are cooked, remove from the oven, and place onions and beets in the container of a high speed blender, along with some of the liquid remaining in the baking dish or pot to aid in the blending process. Add the allspice, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the contents are smooth.
Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl that is suitable for mashing, and add the contents from the blender. Mash the potatoes with your Smood, or other potato masher, to the desired consistency. Mix occasionally with a spoon to make sure that the ingredients are uniformly mixed. If the ingredients are too stiff, add a little soy milk or rice milk to bring to the desired consistency.
Serve and enjoy! (To enlarge the photo of the plate of the mashed potatoes and roasted zucchini, click on the photo or link)
The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
