Combine the mashed vegetables with the vegetable bouillon in a large enough non stick pot and start heating at low heat. Add then slowly the milk, some grated nutmeg. Adjust of salt and add a hint of grated lemon zest.
Continue to heat stirring frequently until reaching the desired consistency.
Remove from heat and serve hot as side for meat or seafood dishes.
