MASHED POTATOES WITH RED BELL PEPPERS

 

Ingredients:

 

2 large red bell peppers

4 large russet potatoes

2/3 cup whipping cream, scalded

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Sea salt to taste and freshly ground white pepper

 

Directions:

 

Make a red pepper puree by steaming the whole peppers until they are soft and running them through a food mill to separate the skin and seeds. Alternatively, peel the soft peppers, remove the seeds by hand, and puree the flesh in a food processor or blender.  Reserve the puree.

 

Peel and cut the potatoes into 1" dice. Cover with cool water in a saucepan.

 

Bring the water to a simmer and cook the potatoes, uncovered until tender, about 20 minutes.  Remove the potatoes to a food mill or bowl to mash by hand.

 

Thin the mashed potatoes with the pepper puree, cream and butter.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Serve with a ladle of Brown Sauce.

 

Yield: 6-8 servings
