Coconut Curry Veggies over...Mashed Potatoes? yep :)

I work with this girl who is very creative. She loves doing crafts, & is really good at coming up with ideas for recipes. And though the ideas are unusual, that's what makes them so fun to create & try. They keep turning out pretty fantastic!

Anyhoo, I know coconut curry coup is traditionally served over rice, but she was insistent that we try mashed potatoes...and I liked it better :) Once again, I never measure anything, ever, so here we go with some estimates....

6 medium sized russet potatoes, diced
4 small red potatoes, diced
olive oil, to taste
sea salt, to taste
2 carrots, sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1/2 cup green beans, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans coconut milk
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup curry powder
half an onion, diced
1 tomato, diced

1) Place diced potatoes in pot of boiling water for about 15-20 minutes. Test with a fork. When potatoes are tender, drain water. Drizzle potatoes with olive oil & sea salt to taste. MASH!
2) Meanwhile, over medium heat, saute minced garlic and onion in oil in bottom of a large pot until fragrant. Add carrots & celery. Saute for another 5-6 minutes.
3)Pour in the coconut milk and sprinkle in seasonings. Stir often, and let it come to a desirable temperature.
4) Add shredded coconut and diced tomato. Stir for 2 minutes, then remove from heat.
5) Scoop mashed potatoes in a bowl, and top with soup. Enjoy this yummy comfort food :)
