Recipe: Summer Vegetable Garlic-Curry Mash

Yesterday evening my landlady gave me a bag full of fresh vegetables from her fields: 1 cauliflower, 2 summer squash (squashes?), 6 cucumbers. I’m leaving on Thursday for almost two weeks, so I immediately set to work finding recipes to use up all this delicious produce before I go. Thus was born the following:

Summer Vegetable Garlic-Curry Mash


  • 4 cups cauliflower (~1 med. head), coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups summer squash (~1 med.), peeled & diced
  • 3/4 cup potato (~1 med.), peeled & diced
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled & halved
  • 1-2 tsp. curry powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • optional: golden raisins & peanuts

VARIATION: Leave out the curry powder and instead season with a bit of powdered ginger and parmesan cheese. Toss in some cooked beans to make it a meal.


  • Bring milk & garlic cloves to a simmer in a small saucepan & cook 5-7 min. or until garlic is soft
  • Boil vegetables in water 7-10 min. or until soft
  • Add curry powder & other seasonings to milk/garlic and mix
  • Drain vegetables, add milk mixture, & mash to desired consistency
  • Hot mash is delicious with a few golden raisins and peanuts stirred in!


Tasty vegetable mash!
