Creamy and rich mashed potatoes with no fat!


1 whole Garlic head, roasted (see preparation)
1 1/2 pounds Russet or Yukon gold Potatoes, washed, cut into quarters
1/2 medium Onion, diced
1/4 cup fat-free Milk
1/4 cup plain, fat-free Greek Yogurt
1 teaspoon dried Rosemary
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Onion powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Peel papery skin from garlic, leaving whole head intact. Wrap in foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Cool and separate cloves to extract garlic pulp. Discard skin and squeeze garlic pulp into small bowl; set aside. (Can be done in advance, or in a garlic roaster)

Arrange potatoes and onion in large pot with water to cover. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat; simmer 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain in colander.

In large bowl, combine potatoes, onion, garlic pulp, milk, yogurt, rosemary, salt, pepper and onion powder. Mash with potato masher until all blended but still chunky.

Serve immediately.
