A very good and tasty alternative to mashed potatoes made without all the butter and cream! Garnish with chopped parsley or chives and a little bit of butter, if desired.

  • Mash potatoes in the cooking liquid to desired smoothness.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute chicken bouillon for the vegetable bouillon if desired. Use bouillon base instead of cubes if preferred.

Tips

If you used the right amount of water, there should be enough to mash potatoes in, without draining or having to add any. If you need to add more liquid, use skim or low fat milk. If you think there might be too much liquid, pour off some, but reserve to add back if necessary.

If I were to say these were the best mashed potatoes I have ever had I would be lying. BUT for having no cream or butter they were pretty darn good. I made as written but then blew the skinny part with my toppings. I think these need a tad of butter if at all possible and you wouldn't miss the cream as much. For being what these are though I have no complaints. Read More
