Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Skip the gravy with these mashed potatoes—they won't need it. The roasted garlic, herb, and sour cream flavor them to delicious perfection.
1 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes or other potatoes, quartered
2 teaspoons bottled minced roasted garlic*
1/4 cup light dairy sour cream
2 to 4 tablespoons fat-free milk
2 teaspoons snipped fresh rosemary, thyme, or oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- In a covered large saucepan cook potatoes in a small amount of boiling water for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain in a colander; return to saucepan.
- Add garlic to potatoes. Mash with a potato masher or an electric mixer on low speed. Add sour cream, milk, desired herb, salt, and pepper. Beat until light and fluffy.
Makes 4 servings.
*To roast your own garlic: For every 1 teaspoon of roasted garlic, wrap 3 unpeeled garlic cloves in foil. Bake in a 400°F (205°C) oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until cloves feel soft when pressed. When cool enough to handle, squeeze garlic paste from cloves.
