1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into wedges
3/4 pound broccoli crowns, chopped (4 cups)
3/4 cup shredded fontina cheese ( used lite mozzarella, thats all I had on hand)
1/2 cup nonfat milk, heated
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large pot. Place potatoes in a steamer basket and steam for 10 minutes.
Place broccoli on top, cover and steam until the potatoes and broccoli are tender, 6 to 8 minutes more.
Transfer the broccoli to a large bowl and coarsely mash with a potato masher.
Add the potatoes, cheese, milk, salt and pepper and continue mashing to desired consistency. Serve immediately.
Note: When I made this, I left the skin of the potatoes on to get more nutrients. You could also sub with cheddar cheese.
Serving Size: 6 -2/3 cup servings
