Recipe from Nompumelelo Thanjekwayo
Mashed potato has its own creamy texture. Just a little bit of milk and oil is enough to make it smooth. Try out your own flavours with different herbs and spices.
8 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 cloves of garlic, quartered
1 tsp (5 ml) salt
2 tbsp (30 ml) sun flower oil
1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped fresh parsley or chives
¼ cup (60 ml) low-fat or
lemon juice and black pepper to taste
Place potatoes, garlic, ½ tsp of the salt and some water in a pot. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat. Simmer for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain well and return potatoes and garlic to the pot. Mash with a potato masher and stir in the remaining ingredients to form a smooth mixture.
Serve as a side dish with a meat dish of your choice.
