Healthy Mashed Potatoes

Makes: 6 servings
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 to 10 garlic cloves
  • 2 pounds potatoes, quartered
  • 1/3 cup light sour cream
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh oregano, rosemary, or thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. To roast garlic, wrap unpeeled cloves in foil. Bake in a 400-degree oven 25 to 35 minutes or until cloves feel soft when pressed. When cool enough to handle, squeeze garlic from peels into a small bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, put potatoes in a large saucepan with enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat. Lower heat to maintain a simmer and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain potatoes; return to saucepan.
  3. Mash potatoes and softened garlic with a potato masher or an electric mixer on low speed. Add sour cream; milk; oregano, rosemary, or thyme; salt; and black pepper. Beat until light and fluffy.
