Meatless Monday: Broccoli Mashpot with Pesto

I do love mashpot but mostly it is eaten during winter days. However in spring there are lighter versions of this typical Dutch dish that we can enjoy. Today I am sharing one with broccoli that I found on the Dutch site Lekker Eten Maken. However this one wasn't vegetarian so we used this recipe as inspiration and created our own version. 

As always with mashpot, it tastes better than it looks

Broccoli Mashpot with Pesto (serves 3)
- 1 broccoli
- 3 large potatoes (about 1kg)
- 100 ml milk
- 2 hard boiled eggs
- 3 tbsp red pesto
- a few sundried tomatoes, cut into stripes
- some black pepper

First peel the potatoes and cut them into chunks. Boil them in water until soft. Meanwhile cut the broccoli in florets and boil them for about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and make a mash from it using the milk and a handheld mixer. Mix in the pesto and some pepper to taste. Add the broccoli, eggs and sundried tomatoes. And that is it! Easy and filling with a hint of summer.

This post is part of Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays.
MMMM is a weekly carnival dedicated to those interested in improving their personal health and the health of the planet by reducing meat consumption one day a week. Every Monday you have a chance to feature a link to something meatless. It doesn’t have to be a recipe {although that would be nice}, it can be a picture of a meatless meal you ate that week, an interesting article you read about meat consumption, a post on your blog about going meatless, perhaps a post on someone else’s blog you found helpful, anything Meatless Monday appropriate.
