Parsley Smashed Potatoes

I love potatoes but can't stand the work involved in making mashed potatoes from scratch. I came up with this simple side dish that was made even easier thanks to my slow cooker. The best part is I can use the leftover broth for soup the next day! —Katie Hagy, Blacksburg, South Carolina

    The directions are confusing. Says discard the vegetables along with cooking juices and....no hint or recommendation on what to do with veggies other than to discard them.
