Well now, the grated ginger in this carrot mash recipe really makes the dish! It takes an everyday tasty bowl of creamy carrot and potato mash a few levels higher, that I can guarantee you.I love potatoes. Pretty much all of our dinners contain potatoes. But since plain boiled potatoes get a little boring after a while, I am always in for a new potato side dish idea. Vegetable potato mash is a creative side. Of one my favorite ones is my potato mash with caramelized onion. Are you fond of olives? Then do check my mashed potatoes with green olives! That’s a surprising combo, and a great side dish for chicken or fish.

Not fond of vegetables? Then try to mash some steamed cauliflower with your cooked potatoes. You won’t hardly taste anything and once mashed, the cauliflower and potatoes look very much alike. I sometimes mash up steamed cauliflower without even adding potatoes. True, taste will be totally different but it really looks almost the same. I love cauliflower mash with chicken saltimbocca! Once made that for my neighbours and they loved it.

I made this ginger and carrot mash recipe twice: first time on the stove and a second time I mashed all the cooked ingredients up in my KitchenAid Stand Mixer Mini. For the last recipe, scroll down to the second recipe on this page!

Fresh Ginger

My god, what a fantastic flavor kick the ginger adds! You should really try it. I’m sure you will love it. There’s no way I could fully describe that wonderful zesty, almost peppery ginger aroma. Ginger is a great match for the carrots. I blended half of the carrots into a puree and stirred them into the mashed potatoes. I really wanted that carrot flavor in the background. The sliced carrots are there for texture and a bit of crunch.

I served this ginger and carrot mash as a side dish for a couple of sausages in a scrumptious onion and Guinness gravy… Needless to say that this dinner was a great success. Definitely worth trying out! Creamy, chunky and zesty… you will adore this ginger and carrot mash recipe! Great in combination with sausages and onion gravy.
