Believe it or not, it is possible to make a delicious comfort food as loveable as mashed potatoes without using any butter. I created these healthy and flavorful mashed potatoes one day when I was craving shepards pie and all I had was a 2 russet potato and 1 sweet potato. The potatoes barely made it to the meat mixture they were so amazing. Enjoy!
2 Russet Potatoes
1 Sweet Potato or Yam
½ cup Milk
¼ cup Caramelized Garlic Olive Oil
3 Tbsp Wild Garlic Italian Dried Herb Blend
Fleur de Sel, to season
1. Boil the potatoes: Peel and slice the potatoes into thin slices. Place in a large stock pot and cover with water. Allow the water to come to a boil and cook the potatoes for 10-12 minutes. Do not overcook, or the potatoes could produce a glue like finished product. Drain the liquid off of the potatoes.
2. Mash the potatoes: With a mixer or potato ricer, mash the potatoes without adding any other liquid or seasoning.
3. Season the potatoes: Once the potatoes are mashed, add the milk, olive oil, wild garlic dried herb blend, and fleur de sel. Mix to combine and taste for seasoning, adding more salt or wild garlic as necessary. Enjoy!
