Mushroom & Sage Mashed Potatoes



Quarter potatoes. Put potatoes and 2T salt in a large pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch.  Bring to a boil, covered with a lid, then reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until potatoes are very tender.

Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.  Add oil, pepper, remaining 1t salt and 1/2 cup cooking water and mash with a potato masher.  Add more cooking water for a looser consistency.
