  • While water is boiling, dice potatoes and carrots and steam or boil on the stove for about 10 minutes until fork tender. Once veggies are tender, add them to a blender along with the garlic, milk, parmesan, mustard, salt, pepper, onion poweder, and apple cider vinegar. Blend up the sauce until smooth and cream.

Notes

Steaming some broccoli along with the carrots and potatoes, and then setting those aside to be added back into the sauce once it's blended would be an awesome way to get even more veggies into the recipe
