Step 1:

Peel the 2 potatoes and slice them into large pieces. Place them in a pot, then fill them with water. Add a bit of salt and cook the potatoes until they are soft. While they are cooking, peel the carrot and grate. Once the potatoes are soft, drain the water and transfer them into a bowl.

Step 2:

Place a pan over heat and pour some olive oil. Add the grated carrots and cook until softened. Once done, set them aside.

Step 3:

Finely chop the parsley, then set aside. Mash the potatoes using a fork or potato masher. Add the finely chopped parsley, cooked carrots, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Mix until well combined.
