"These creamy Middle Eastern-style potatoes are flavored with turmeric and use olive oil rather than butter. They are great alone, and for fillings in puff pastries. Amounts of salt, pepper, and other spices may be adjusted to taste."

From the Recipe Creator: I just realized I forgot an ingredient! This recipe is great with a dash of nutmeg as well
Pretty good, a different take on mashed potatoes. Bf just said "they're different". He ate his full serving though, and agreed to have some with chicken for his leftover lunch tomorrow, so he liked them okay. He did ask me if these were seasoned with saffron, and I think they'd be good that way--but I LOVE saffron. Turmeric, which I like, but not as much, is a harsher flavor. Nice idea, and it works pretty well, so I'd try with different seasonings. I used red potatoes and didn't peel the skin--part laziness, part wanting the nutrition from it. I prefer mashed potatoes with the skin anyway. Thanks for the recipe!
Phenomenal! love these potatoes. I went on a potatoe testing kick tonight and made 4 different types of mashed potatoes. This was by far the shocker!! Love it. It tastes wonderful. Not quite as fluffy as your traditional mashed potatoes, but the taste, Wow! And it wasn't overpowering like a couple other recipies we tried. Try em, you'll love it.
I added 2 onions instead of one, and instead of 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, I did 1 and a 1/2 and oh boy - this was really worth 5 stars! So delicious.
These were really tasty and something completely unique. They would go great with some grilled chicken or fish!
Loved it. Did end up adding some milk when I was mashing at the end. Did not want to keep adding oil to make them creamy. Great flavor!
I served these with the Moroccan Lamb with Shiraz Honey Sauce. BG HIT!!
Very tasty dish. went very well with a Pork Tenderloin Wellington. Everyone liked it and asked for the ingredients. I added a bit more liquid to make them a bit softer, but otherwise wouldn't change a thing.
