Second-rate mashed potatoes for everyone: how to create a single lot, then customize



Here, a mix of seasoned potatoes with yellow paste and cloves of fatty garlic is given to the treatment of baking trays, and the result is a greater depth of flavor compared to the usual boiled potatoes in the water.

Once the components are crushed together, you can proceed in two ways: butter and milk and / or cream, or keep them without milk by adding vegetable stock and vegan butter. See the VARIATION, below.

Go ahead: potatoes and garlic can be crushed, minus their final add-ons, chilled and chilled until 3 days before.


4poundsYukon of medium size or yellow potatoes, cut into pieces

46 large cloves of garlic (peeled, left whole)

1 1/2tspcelery seed

Place a grid in the upper third of the oven; preheat to 400 degrees.

Step 2

Combine the potatoes, garlic (to taste), the seeds of celery, the mustard powder, the sweet paprika and the 1/4 cup of oil in a large bowl; mix to distribute evenly, then spread on a large edged baking tray, including all oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Roast (top grill) for 40-45 minutes, stirring once or twice, until tender, sparkling and slightly golden.

Step 4

Immediately transfer the potatoes, garlic and all the drips of the pan into a bowl; use a potato masher to break everything.

Step 5

The mix should be seasoned quite well; add the butter and cream (both to taste), then mix until melted and well incorporated. Serve hot
