Garlic Mashed Potatoes (Adapted from Food Network Kitchens)
2 – 3 servings
– 4 medium red potatoes
– 2 – 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
– ¼ cup whole milk
– 2 teaspoons store-bought garlic paste
– Ground black pepper
- Peel and clean the potatoes. Cut the potatoes in half. Put them in a medium pot with cold water, and make sure the water cover the potatoes completely. Season with salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water starts to boil, simmer and cook until the potatoes are fork tender, about 35 – 45 minutes.
- Drain the potatoes, and return them to the pot. Mashed the potatoes with a masher or big spoon until there is no lump.
- Meanwhile, heat the milk in the microwave for 30 seconds until warm.
- Put the butter and warm milk into the mashed potatoes. Mix together with a spatula. Stir in the garlic paste. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
- If you cannot get any garlic paste, you can use garlic powder. The flavor is not as strong, but it is still ok.
- Mashed potatoes can be kind of fat sometimes. You can use reduced fat milk and margarine instead. I have tried that before, and it was perfectly fine.
