Rosemary-Scented Mashed Potatoes with Limas

Really, is there any vegetable that doesn't taste good stirred into mashed potatoes? The "Rosemary-Scented Mashed Potatoes with Limas" (page 374) is an excellent example of how mashed potatoes are the perfect launching point for almost any vegetable or bean you can think of. A very simple list of ingredients - Lima beans, Yukon gold potatoes, fresh rosemary, and salt and pepper. Technically, the recipe also calls for margarine, but I stopped using margarine on potatoes (and everything else for that matter) many years ago. Instead, I use veggie broth, soymilk, or potato cooking water to moisten and mash the spuds, and sometimes throw in a little nutritional yeast for a richer flavor. (This time I just used veggie broth.) These delicious potatoes would make a great accompaniment to any meal!
