Mashed potatoes…with an attitude.

Mashed Potato and Corn Casserole

2 pounds potatoes, peeled & cubed
1/4 cup unsweetened almond or soy milk
1 (14.5-ounce) can corn kernels, drained
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup chopped green onions (green parts only)
2 cloves garlic, minced

Topping:
1/4 cup corn flour or corn meal
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic powder

Boil or steam potatoes until tender (about 20 minutes). Pour in almond milk, and mash until smooth. Put corn in a food processor and process about 10 seconds to break corn into smaller pieces. Mix corn with potatoes, and add parsley, salt, and pepper.

Preheat oven to 350º F. Heat olive oil over medium heat, and cook onions until soft and translucent. Add green onions and garlic, and cook one minute, stirring constantly so garlic doesn’t burn. Stir into potato-corn mixture. Lightly spray or rub a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish with olive oil, and spread mixture into dish. In a small bowl, use a fork to mix corn flour, olive oil, and garlic powder until well blended. Sprinkle over top of casserole, and bake 30 minutes.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup)

Recipe Notes

  • Substitute 1-2 tablespoons fresh chives or 1/2 tablespoon dried chives for the green onions.
  • Stir in a cup of steamed chopped broccoli.
  • Top with sliced olives.
  • Add a little spice by stirring in a can of green chiles.

  1. Hello, I’m currently rebuilding our blog. I really like your template and was wondering if you would mind sharing your template with us? If not, we understand. Thanks!

  2. Sure! I started with a basic Blogger template called Stretch Denim, but then I added the header element, which I created in Picasa. Thanks for the compliment on my blog. I hope this information helps. Let me know if you have any other questions! 🙂

  3. I thought in the Daniel fast you could not eat things like salt, pepper, tofu, and any kind of bread… im a bit confused…

    • Good question. The guidelines of the Daniel Fast are based upon the prophet Daniel’s fasting practices as described in the Bible (see Daniel 10:2-3). The idea of the fast is not to imitate exactly what he ate (especially since we don’t know for sure) but to seek God with the same spiritual hunger. Therefore, the food restrictions are given to help you create boundaries for your fast.

    Do you have an estimate as to how many medium-sized potatoes should be used for this recipe?
