Idahoan mashed potatoes

Idahoan Buttery Homestyle Mashed Potatoes [3]I love the convenience of Idahoan dehydrated mashed potatoes [4]. They use real Idaho potatoes (crucial!), and a few flavors, and within 5 minutes, you have an easy side dish that tastes like homemade. I was lucky enough to tour their processing plant and got to see the potatoes coming in from the fields, being washed, steamed, rolled and flaked and put into the bags. It is fascinating, and I will share that tour with you another time. For now, trust me, these are good! They have other flavor varieties as well, but for this recipe, I chose the simplest flavor so the green Kale Pesto could shine through.
