Recipe for broccoli-potato mash with beef sauce

Here you get the recipe for a homemade and creamy broccoli and potato mash topped with beef sauce. This is a really good and filling meal that is super easy to make. The beef sauce is even better the day after, so if you want you could with advantage make the sauce the day before you need it (but the broccoli-potato mash should be made right before serving).

This is one of those meals we never get tired of. We wanted to try and sneak some more vegetables into it without messing with the smooth consistency, hence why we blended the broccoli into the mash. This worked out quite well as the broccoli compliments the potato flavor beautifully and you get some extra vitamins that way. Win-win!

A healthy mashed potatoes with beef gravy recipe

You could call this the healthy version of a classic mashed potatoes with beef gravy. The classic beef gravy is made on a roux (a butter and flour sauce) while our sauce here is simply made on chopped tomatoes. This makes it resemble a bolognese sauce a little bit. Furthermore we have added broccoli to the mash which is a perfect way to sneak in a little more green without ruining the consistency and flavor you’ve come to expect from a meal like this. This recipe is great for kids and adults alike.
