Lemony Herbed Mashed Potatoes

Description

Lemon brings out the rich flavors of the broth and sour cream in this deliciously satisfying version of mashed potatoes! This recipe makes about 2-3 servings, and was submitted by Meredith Leonard.

Ingredients

3 large potatoes
2/3 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup freshly chopped herbs (thyme, chives, sage, and/or parsley)
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 packets True Lemon

Directions
  1. Peel potatoes and cut them into large 1-inch pieces. Place them in a pot and cover with cold water.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender when pricked with a fork, about 20 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes. Drain, and place in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Bring the stock to a boil in the same pot the potatoes were in, and turn down to a simmer.
  4. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or a hand mixer*.
  5. Slowly add the hot stock until desired consistency is reached. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Fold in the sour cream, herbs, and True Lemon. Serve, and enjoy!
Notes

For added nutrition value and texture, leave the potato skins on!
*If using a hand mixer for this recipe, be sure to not over-mix. If potatoes are mixed for too long they release their starches, which causes them to become sticky and gummy.
