I was watching Oprah on Friday and she had Jamie Oliver on. He made his mashed potatoes with olive oil, and they looked yummy. Has anyone ever tried that? I am going to try it and maybe throw in some chives or garlic.

I would also like to get the name of a good brand of veggie burgers for this coming grilling season. I was looking for a brand without alot of junk in them. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

I make mash potatoes with olive oil all the time. It isn't unusual for individuals on a heart smart diet to use olive oil instead of butter in many foods.

I have never tried olive oil but I have cooked several cloves of garlic with the potatoes and then mashed them all together with heated rice milk and a little smart balance light. The olive oil sounds good. How much did he use and is that in place of the milk or the smart balance?

Hey Gerikat,

No need to purchase those and pay multiple times the price compared to homemade ones that take little effort. Set aside some some time one day to make up some TVP veggie patties seasoned however you like... some same, some different, label them accordingly and stick them in your freezer with waxed paper or parchment paper in-between each patty before storing in one large heavy duty freezer bag.

I recently learned to love veggie burgers! Lots of options for flavoring those, and no need to pay supermarket prices for the same or even better. I have to say that today I don't miss animal meat hamburgers at all.

Janey,

The olive oil would in place in butter or butter substitute. Some people don't even use milk or a milk substitute in mashed potatoes, but simply use some of the cooking water for the liquid to make them smooth. You can add parsley, chopped spring green onion, and other seasonings to flavor those mashed potatoes.

They can be really yummy and very nutritious. Choose from things in your spice cabinet that you like the flavor(s) of and experiment. Potatoes are cheap!... not much money to lose with experimenting and lots to gain from having tried expanding your potato horizons.

Janey, I am not sure about the questions you asked. They didn't go into great detail, but Oprah loved them. I believe he just used the olive oil. I have put garlic, chives, and all kinds of things in my potatoes, but it never occurred to me to use olive oil, in place of the rice milk. I think that is a brilliant idea, and I don't know why I didn't think of it, considering how much olive oil I already use.

But, now that I think of it, Oprah said you can get the recipes on her website. I will check it out in a bit.

Windchimes, I am going to check the recipe out on Oprah's site, but I believe he just used the olive oil. I don't think he used milk or milk substitute at all. I will get back to you.

I have never cooked with TVP. Would that be the same thing added in to any type of veggie patty I would buy? So, you are saying it would be a waste of money to purchase the pre-made patty, but should make my own?

Thanks for the advice Windchimes, but I know how to cook and I know how to experiment with spices in my pantry. I have been cooking for my family for more than 30 years.

I have never heard of putting olive oil in mashed potatoes and I thought it sounded interesting which is why I asked the question. I don't need a general lesson on how to make potatoes more interesting.

I checked the recipe on Oprah's site and he states to replace the butter with the olive oil but he does not say how much. You could probably figure that out by taste testing, as you make them. He still does call for a splash of milk, but you could probably omit that to, if you wanted. He also adds a spig of rosemary and some sea salt. I think it sounds good, so I will try it sometime this week.

Janey, Sorry you were personally offended by my response. Perhaps there are others who will benefit from it and not be so defensive and open to new ideas for seasoning simple things. I've noticed that some posters like to attack other posters with no valid reason for doing so. None of us are better than others, and I would like to think that we are here to lift one another up rather than beat them down.

Unfortunately some were simply born to be mean spirited, and I would like to think you are not one of them, though some of your posts are questionable when it comes to discerning this. Can you give others 'space' to be who they are and accept them as they are in love and peace?

I just found the recipe on Oprah's site. It looks good except I would have to leave the rosemary out because it is not a spice that agrees with me.

I agree that experimenting with how much olive oil to use would be best. Depends on a persons taste I guess. I am going to try it next time I maked mashed potatoes.

Thanks for sharing!

I was not attacking you Windchimes. Remember, not everyone on the boards is 20 years old with no experience. I felt like you were talking down to me or lecturing me like I had no idea what I was doing in the kitchen.

I definitely don't feel that I am better than anyone else on the boards or anywhere. I am not a mean person at all, and I assume that you are not either, but like you said about me, some of your posts are questionable in that area too.

I am here to support others, like most of the people here. I do feel that I have the right to speak up for myself or express my opinion about things.We don't all always have to agree. That doesn't mean I am attacking you or anyone else.

Sometimes a simple answer will work for a question. All I needed was a simple answer to my question.

Janey, Honestly I was absolutely not putting you down at all! Potatoes are a fun food and can be seasoned in so many ways. Personally I like to bake up a bunch of them, and make twice-baked potatoes to put in my freezer. Some are seasoned one way and others a different way. It's so easy to pop those into the microwave when I need something to eat in a hurry.

I do my best to keep my answers simple. I'm very sorry that you were offended. What may not have helped you or been supportive to what you wanted, may in fact be helpful to someone else down the road on these boards. I wouldn't know.

What you think is supportive may not be what others find supportive. Again, my apologies to you and I'll do my best to avoid your posts in the future. Some people are 'super sensitive' and can't relate to specific others, particularly when they have already perceived another poster as some type of enemy. NOT my style at all to deliberately come across as mean spirited, nor critical of others, never mind putting them down. I believe we need to lift others up, yet at the same time be totally honest (emotionally authentic).

These are the ways that we help one another grow in positive ways. I'm not so fragile that I cannot handle constructive criticism in my life, though I know many who are not where I am in my life path and they choose to retaliate absent any real cause to.

...are simply awesome. Thicker and much better texture than any veggie burger I've tried. And I've tried a lot. I personally like the Texas burger with BBQ sauce, but they also make a fantastic "quarter pounder" burger too! Not all of their veggie burgers are dairy-free, but many are so read the labels. If they are, you'll find "Non-dairy" on the front of the box.
