Olive-Oil Mashed Potatoes

Source: Everyday Food, September 2003


  • 1 1/2 pounds waxy potatoes (4 medium)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup skim milk


  1. Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch chunks. In a large saucepan, cover potatoes with cold water by 2 inches and add 1 tablespoon coarse salt. Bring to a boil; cook until potatoes are very tender and easily pierced with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain; transfer to a large bowl.

  2. Using a potato masher or fork, mash potatoes with olive oil and milk until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with more olive oil before serving, if desired.
