If you think you have to give up your favorite mashed potatoes, think again. With a few minor changes, you can feel better about saying, "Please pass the potatoes!"

Ingredients

3
lb unpeeled red or Yukon gold potatoes (about 8 medium), cut into 1-inch pieces
1
tablespoon olive oil
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
to 2/3 cup buttermilk
Freshly ground black pepper
2
tablespoons chopped fresh chives, if desired

Steps

  • 1 In 3-quart saucepan, place potatoes; add just enough water to cover. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain.
  • 2 In same saucepan, mash potatoes, oil and salt with potato masher just until lumpy. Gradually add buttermilk, mashing until blended but still lumpy. (Amount of buttermilk needed to make potatoes creamy depends on variety of potatoes used.) Season to taste with pepper. Stir in chives.

By replacing high-fat ingredients found in traditional mashed potatoes with great-tasting alternatives, this version is better for you but just as yummy.

Remember to keep those peels on for added nutrients, like iron and vitamin C.
