DelectablePlanet's picture
Garlic is a great way to add flavor to mashed potatoes without adding fat. Plus, garlic is rich in selenium, a strong cancer-fighting agent.
Ingredients
  Whole garlic cloves 5 , peeled
  Russet potatoes 2 Large, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Fortified unsweetened soy milk/Other non-dairy milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Plain One)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

Place the garlic in a medium saucepan. Arrange the potatoes over the garlic. Add the water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for about 25 minutes, until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife. Check occasionally and add more water, 1 tablespoon at at time, if the saucepan becomes too dry.

Mash with a potato masher or fork. Then stir in enough soy milk to obtain a creamy consistency. Season with salt to taste.

Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Garlic Mashed Potatoes will keep for up to 2 days.
