It seems that on every cooking competition on TV, pureed this, and foamed that, are all the rave. I don't get it. All I know is, as Moto Moto the Hippo from Madagascar says, "I like 'em chunky"... at least when it comes to potatoes... and babies. Here is one of my favorite ways to make them... potatoes, that is. Super easy and amazingly delicious!
2 1/2 pounds red potatoes, washed and cubed
water for boiling
salt to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
4 ounces Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
1. Boil the potatoes in a pot of water for 10-15 minutes or until they are tender. Check with a fork.
2. Drain the water and mix in the 'cream cheese', and chives and stir with a large spoon, breaking up the potatoes as you mix. You could use a potato masher, but like I said, "I like 'em chunky".
3. Salt to taste.
