Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

  • 1 medium head garlic, papery skin removed and top sliced off to expose cloves
  • 1¼ pounds all-purpose potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ½  teaspoon salt (will be split for recipe)
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free buttermilk
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Wrap the garlic head in aluminium foil; bake until the cloves are soft, 45-60 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes; squeeze the pulp from the cloves into a small bowl.
  2. In a large pot, combine the potatoes, bay leaf, ¼ teaspoon of the salt, and enough cold water to cover; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, 10-15 minutes. Drain, reserving the cooking liquid; discard the bay leaf.
  3. With a potato masher or an electric mixer at low speed, mash the potatoes with the garlic, buttermilk, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; thin with the cooking liquid if needed.
