Mashed Potatoes and Carrots (Vegan)

Mashed potatoes and carrots, eh? Trust me, they can go together and they taste scrumptious.

I came up with this recipe one day when I was trying to find creative ways to add additional vegetables into dishes my family love. I know my family loves mashed potatoes and cooked carrots, so I thought why not try them together?! Well I can tell you when they are mashed together and mixed with some coconut oil, they are fantastic.

1 pound  potatoes, scrubbed and skins removed
1 pound baby carrots
4 tablespoons coconut oil
1 1/2 teaspoons Herbamare
Pepper to taste

Bring water a boil in a large pot. When water is boiling, add potatoes and baby carrots. Return to boil. Cover, reduce heat and let simmer until cooked, about 30 minutes. Drain potatoes and carrots and then return them to the hot pan. Add coconut oil, Herbamare, and pepper and mash with a hand mixer or potato smasher. Serve warm.
