Garlic Mashed Potatoes

November/December 1994

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (15 votes)

What could be more satisfying than mashed potatoes? The challenge lies in making them rich and creamy without an excess of butter and cream. In this version, the potatoes are flavored with poached garlic, thinned with chicken stock and enriched with a small amount of reduced-fat sour cream. The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.

Nice

I didn't use any broth, since I like a bit of firmness to my mashed potatoes. The sour cream did just the trick.

I am just reading this and not making it, yet. I assume you would mash the garlic with the potatoes and not discard the garlic...there is no mention of the garlic after the potatoes and garlic are boiled together...may want to update this recipe to clarify.
