sage and garlic mashed potatoes -
light & flavor-packed... you won't even need the gravy!
6 medium waxy potatoes
10 sage leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
12 cloves of garlic (or more!)
1/2 cup sour cream
salt and pepper
peel and quarter your potatoes. boil in salted water until fork tender. drain water and return cooked potatoes to pan to cook off excess water.
peel and chop your garlic and saute in olive oil at a low temperature until lightly browned. add butter and chopped sage leaves. saute for another 2 minutes, then set mixture aside.
i prefer to use a ricer to mash my potatoes. it is a super simple and quick way to get perfectly fluffy potatoes. in a large bowl, mix in the garlic-sage mixture and sour cream with your riced potatoes (you can use light sour cream if you want to reduce the fat content). heavily salt and pepper. serve hot with chopped green onion and an extra dollop of sour cream... or gravy if you prefer!
