Crushed Red Potatoes with Buttermilk
From EatingWell: May/June 1996
This simple preparation makes a smashing and virtually labor-free alternative to traditional mashed potatoes.
- 2 pounds red potatoes, scrubbed (about 6)
- 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste
- Cover potatoes with cold water in a large saucepan. Add salt and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes in a colander and transfer to a medium bowl. Coarsely crush the potatoes with a potato masher or the back of a large spoon. Gently stir in buttermilk and chives. Season with salt and pepper.
