Healty-ish Mashed Potatoes

Although some of my favorite mashed potato recipes call for butter milk or cream, I love this healthier version.


1 package baby yukon potatoes

2 garlic cloves, peeled

2 tbsp. skim milk

1 tbsp. non-hydrogenated margarine
Salt to taste

(if you like your potatoes really creamy, use 1/4 cup skim milk and 2 tbsp of the margarine)

  1. Add potatoes and garlic cloves to pot, and cover with water

  2. Bring to boil over medium high heat

  3. Reduce to a simmer, and cook for about 35 minutes or until fork tender

  4. Drain potatoes

  5. Place potatoes in a large bowl
  6. Mash the potatoes using a hand-held potato masher

  7. Heat the milk and margarine in a small pan (optional, but worth the effort)

  8. Add milk and margarine to potatoes

  9. Continue to mash the potatoes mixing the ingredients together
10. Add salt to season to taste
11. Enjoy!
