  • Cook potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine sour cream, shallots, parsley, milk, oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Stir until smooth and set aside.

  • Drain the potatoes and crush--but do not completely mash--potatoes with a potato masher or the back of a large spoon. Stir in the sour-cream mixture. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
