Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes in bowlI make a ton of garlic mashed potatoes every year for Thanksgiving. Every year, I have more and more health conscious guests. I make a version that is lower in fat and calories and higher in fiber. The secret to this mash is using the potatoes' own starchy water for depth in place of sticks of butter and whole milk. At the end, you add a bit of butter for that flavour. For guests who do want the full on fatty version, simply add a pat of butter to theirs and mix!


If you don't want potato skins, just peel before cutting and boiling.
This recipe multiplies perfectly.

Total Time: 30 minutes
