  • 4 large potatoes (chopped into small chunks, about 6-8 cups worth)
  • 4 cups green beans (cut into bite-sized pieces)
  • 1 large onion (roughly chopped)
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup cream

Herbs and Spices:

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • to taste salt


  • Toss the potatoes, green beans and onion into a pot. Cover with cold water and then bring to a boil.
  • Boil the veggies for approximately 20-25 minutes, until you can easily stick a fork through the potatoes. Drain excess water well.
  • Immediately add the cream, butter and spices.
  • Roughly mix everything together until it is mashed, but still chunky.


Tips and Tricks:
1. The smaller you cut the potatoes, the quicker they cook - but that will also make a more “mashy” end product, which is still good. I usually cut the potatoes into 8ths to leave it a bit chunkier.
