Skinny Smashed Red Potatoes

January 24

One thing I love to eat in the winter is mashed potatoes.  Of course, I like to make them with cream and butter, but I have found a delicious way to prepare those creamy red potatoes with a fraction of the fat and calories!  What a tasty way to stick to your fitness goals and add a little extra protein to your families diet!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Skinny Smashed Red Potatoes

  • 6 medium red potatoes, washed and quartered (peeling on)
  • 2 cups chicken stock (and enough water to cover the potatoes)
  • 3 cloves garlic, whole, peeled
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain (more as needed to reach desired consistency…I have used up to 1 cup)
  • 3 wedges laughing cow Swiss flavor cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper

Directions:

Add potatoes and chicken stock to a medium size pot.  Add enough water to cover the potatoes.  Add garlic cloves and bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until potatoes are soft in the middle and cooked through.  Reserve 1/4 cup cooking liquid and drain potatoes.  Place potatoes and garlic cloves back into pot.   Add cooking liquid and cheese.  Using potato masher, smash potatoes to break their shape.  Add Greek yogurt, salt and pepper.  Continue to smash until desired consistency.  Add more yogurt if needed.  Serves 6
