Garlicky Mashed Potatoes
A Heart-Healthy Vegetable Recipe
- 2½ pounds potatoes, halved
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled and quartered
- 1/3 to ½ cup extra virgin olive oil, or to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
If you would like, peel the potatoes. (For a more nutritious dish, leave half of them with the skins on.) Add potatoes to a large pot of boiling water. Add the garlic cloves and cook, covered, until the potatoes are very tender, about 25 to 30 minutes. Drain the potatoes and garlic well and pour them into a warm serving bowl, or if you choose, mash them in the saucepan. Mash them coarsely, adding the olive oil a little at a time. When all the oil has been added, taste and add pepper if needed. Serve immediately.
Makes 6 servings.
