Basic Mashed Potatoes

In my mind, there aren't many foods as satisfying as "Basic Mashed Potatoes" (page 373). The recipe as written includes just 4 simple ingredients - Yukon Gold potatoes, soymilk, margarine, and salt.  Since I choose not to use margarine or oil when I cook, I replaced this with a little extra soymilk, plus I added a couple tablespoons of nutritional yeast to add a richness of flavor to the mash. I also find using vegetable broth instead of soymilk, along with the nutritional yeast, creates a delightful blend of flavors.  What's not to like about mashed potatoes?
