Very satisfying, easy and healthy side dish for most any dinner.
Making garlic mashed potatoes with a little onion added in is a simple side dish that really adds to a meal. It goes well with most any meat including steak, fish and chicken. And it can be for a fancy New York Strip steak or just a plain old hamburger. It fits right in where ever it’s served.
This recipe uses non-fat yogurt instead of sour cream, milk or butter. Making it a little more on the healthy side. Though it is a simple white carbohydrate.
Wash the potatoes well and leave the skin on. The skin is a good source of fiber and vitamins, plus it adds to the texture of the dish.
When the potatoes are done being boiled, and don’t over boil them. You want them a little firm, but cooked all the way through. Use a knife to cut them up into chunks, but be careful not to mix in up into a paste. Nobody likes eating paste, except maybe that glue you tasted in kindergarten. You want bigger-ish chunks of potato.
After adding in the yogurt, onion and garlic mix lightly to maintain some of the bigger pieces of potato and serve.
Below is the recipe, instructions and a short video of the process. If you make this recipe let me know how it went. After tasting it, I hope you say “delicious Eric”. Thanks, Delicious Eric.Print
