Olive Oil & Herb Mashed Potatoes

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/olive_oil_herb_mashed_potatoes.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 2013

In this healthy mashed potato recipe, we flavor the mashed potatoes with an herb-infused olive oil. These green˜specked mashed potatoes taste great with pan-seared pork chops or chicken.

8 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Peel potatoes, if desired, and cut into 2-inch chunks. Place the potatoes and 1 tablespoon salt in a large heavy saucepan. Add cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes are very tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, crush the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt with garlic, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a mortar and pestle until a paste forms. (Or very finely chop garlic and herbs, then combine with salt and pepper in a bowl.) Stir in oil.
  3. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher, an electric hand-held mixer or by working through a ricer.
  4. Stir the herb mixture, buttermilk and pepper to taste into the mashed potatoes.
