Bring water, with potatoes, to a boil.

Once at a boil, boil potatoes 10-minutes, or until tender.

Drain well.

Place potatoes in a bowl, add the remaining ingredients, and coarsely mash to “muddle,” or bruise the herbs to release the flavors.

For a Faster Side Dish:

Try instant polenta or couscous.

Follow package directions for yield and method. 

At the end, add the herb mixture and “muddle” as directed.
