You won't believe you're eating healthy with these tasty potatoes. We made them creamy with buttermilk and then added flavor with Parmesan cheese and chives.
Ingredients

uncooked potato(es)

10 medium, red (about 2 1/2 lbs)

low-fat buttermilk

½ cup(s), warmed

parmesan cheese

3 Tbsp, grated, strong-flavored, grated

chives

¼ cup(s), chopped

table salt

1 tsp

black pepper

tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with an inch of water; bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer and cook until fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Drain and return potatoes to pot.
  2. Mash potatoes with a potato masher. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well to combine. Yields about 2/3 cup per serving.
Notes
Add the bold flavor of wild mushrooms to these mashed potatoes by soaking 1/4 cup of dried shiitake, porcini or black trumpet mushooms in boiling hot water for 10 minutes. Drain well, chop and stir in with the cheese.
