Servings 6 servings
Cost $3.95 / .66¢ PER SERVING
- 2 pounds red potatoes, cut into 2-inch pieces (skin on or off)
- 3 large cloves garlic minced
- sea salt and pepper
- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ⅔ cup chicken or vegetable broth
- ⅔ cup light sour cream or 2% plain greek yogurt
COOK THE POTATOES: Add the potatoes to a large stockpot or dutch oven. Fill with cold water, enough to cover the potatoes by about an inch. Add 2 teaspoons sea salt. Bring the water to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-high and continue to boil for about 10 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain in a colander.
MELT THE BUTTER: While the potatoes cook, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, stirring constantly until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Then add the broth. Bring to a simmer and remove from heat and set aside.
MASH THE POTATOES: Return the potatoes to the stockpot. Use a potato masher mash them to your desired texture. Fold in the broth, sour cream, and parmesan (be sure not to over-mix). Give the potatoes and taste test and add salt and pepper as needed.
SERVE AND STORE: Serve the potatoes warm with additional butter and Parmesan on top. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.
FOR MEAL PREP: Consider adding a bit more liquid to get more of a whipped texture so that they reheat well all the way up to 5 days out. I add about ¼ cup of additional broth gradually until they are a little softer.
FOR LEFTOVERS: Potatoes tend to dry out a touch as leftovers. If yours seem dry, add about a little extra broth or milk to freshen them up.
