to go with the paprika chicken with mushrooms, m also found a recipe for mashed potatoes – this one with scallions. it was really good!


  • 2 pounds medium yellow-fleshed potatoes such as Yukon Gold
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups chopped scallion (2-1/2 bunches)
  • 2/3 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


Quarter potatoes, then cover with salted cold water by 1 inch in a large saucepan and simmer, uncovered, until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

While potatoes are simmering, heat butter over moderately high heat in a large nonstick skillet and sauté scallion, stirring, until just tender, about 6 minutes.

Drain potatoes in a colander and return to saucepan. Mash hot potatoes with milk using a potato masher until smooth, then stir in scallion, salt, and pepper. Add fresh parsley, if desired.
