Irio - Peas, potatoes and Corn Print Email

2 cups frozen green peas
1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into small chunks
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups fresh or frozen corn

Place the peas and potatoes in a large saucepan and add water to cover. Stir in the salt and place over medium flame. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are cooked through. Drain, reserving the liquid.

Simmer the corn with a little salted water in a separate saucepan for a few minutes while the potatoes and peas are cooking.

Mash the potatoes and peas together with a potato masher or put through a ricer to form a pale green puree. Stir in the corn with a little of the reserved liquid and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

Add a little butter to the final purée for a little more flavor if you like. - makes 6 large side servings -?Adapted from Whats4Eats.
