Anything with garlic is my favorite! I love mashed potatoes, but they have to have all of these yummy ingredients. Green onion is also a fav. Soooo good!

I love garlic mashed potatoes with pretty much anything. Thanks for the leaner version. We are also trying to watch what we eat and go healthier.
Using broth?! That is brilliant! I love that idea. You still get that creaminess and you’re not only NOT losing flavor, I bet it boosts the flavor!

This looks so good! Have you ever tried using full fat coconut milk? It’s awesome for a dairy free version.
I love mashed potatoes! But so many “light” versions take all the fun out of them, so I was happy to see that you included that all important sour cream. Sounds delicious!
