These healthy and easy mashed potatoes get a savory touch from chicken broth and richness from a bit of sour cream.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes in a large heavy pot and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Off the heat, mash potatoes, adding enough hot broth to make a smooth puree. Stir in sour cream and season with salt and pepper.


To make ahead: Keep the potatoes warm, covered with wax paper, over a pan of barely simmering water for up to 1 hour.
