A healthier version of a classic recipe – potato skins add fiber to these garlic mashed potatoes and rice milk and olive oil replace the dairy.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- 8 medium Yukon Gold Potatoes
- 2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
- 2 cups water
- ½ cup rice milk - or more if needed
- ½ tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon Himalayan cooking salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- Scrub potatoes and chop into 2-inch chunks. (No need to peel.)
- Add potatoes, 2 cups of vegetable broth and 2 cups of water to a large saucepan, cover and bring to boil.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer partially covered for approximately 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pricked with a fork.
- Drain potatoes, leaving a small amount of the cooking liquid behind. (Enough to wet the bottom of the saucepan.)
- Add ½ cup rice milk, ½ tbsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. dried parsley, ½ tsp. garlic powder, ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper to the potatoes and mash with a potato masher. (Avoid over-mashing or the potatoes will become gummy.)
Garlic Mashed Potatoes Review
Mashed potatoes get a bad rap. But they don't have to be loaded with milk and butter to taste delicious. And, when you leave the skins on, you keep the fiber and important nutrients.
