  1. 2 pounds russet potatoes (about 4 medium), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  2. 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed
  3. 1/4 cup Arbosana Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  4. 2 teaspoons Whole Spice Herbs De Provence Seasoning
  5. 1 teaspoon minced flat-leaf parsley leaves
  6. Freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes, 1 teaspoon salt, and cold water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat.

  6. Once warmed, remove pan from the heat.
  7. Mash the potatoes through the food mill, ricer, or by hand into the pan.
