Instant Mashed Potato Hack
source: Manuel Alarcon
Lately, because of stomach surgery, my diet consists primary of protein shakes, vitamins and instant mashed potatoes. I’ve eaten them plain, with chicken broth, with garlic and oil, and every other healthy way you can think of. That being the case, I’ve now become something of an expert on instant mashed potato recipes (at least in my own eyes!)
So, here are the instructions for my favorite Instant Mashed Potato Hack:
1. Follow the recipe as normal but substitute quality vegetable broth for the water.
2. Instead of butter, add 1/2 – 3/4 tablespoon of low fat plain yogurt per serving.
3. Mix in a little milk if needed.
4. Add salt and reheat in the microwave. Serve immediately.
These potatoes are so healthy and good it’s hard to believe they are instant. The yogurt gives them a little tang and the vegetable broth adds a more substantial flavor than plain water. Try it!
