Each spoonful of Yukon gold mashed potatoes is so delicious with the creamy yogurt, it’s hard to believe it is almost fat free!
lb unpeeled Yukon gold potatoes (about 8 medium), cut into 1-inch pieces
tablespoon butter or olive oil
container (6 oz) Greek Fat Free plain yogurt
teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
tablespoons chopped fresh chives, if desired
In 3-quart saucepan, place potatoes. Add water just to cover. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover and boil gently (simmer) 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain.
In same saucepan, mash potatoes, butter and salt with potato masher just until lumpy. Gradually add yogurt, mashing until blended but still lumpy. Stir in pepper and chives.
You can substitute chopped green onions for the fresh chives if you like.
Add a couple cloves of fresh garlic to the water before boiling the potatoes for garlic mashed potatoes.
