Dreamy, Dairy Free, Skinny Mashed Potatoes

Print Friendly

Mashed potatoes really don’t need to be made with milk or cream to be rich and creamy. I’m using reduced-sodium chicken broth instead! Their delicious flavor is also coming from cooked onions and a little Smart Balance Light. The skinny for 1 serving is 148 calories, 1.9 grams of fat and 4 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. Made with butter and milk each serving has 269 calories and 10 grams of fat.

Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes


Ingredients

1½ pounds Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes, Yukon gold or red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into even sized chunks, see shopping tip

¾ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 cups onions, chopped

Salt and pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons Smart Balance Light, see healthy benefits


Instructions

1. Add potatoes to a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 15-20 minutes until tender.

2. In the meantime, place onions on a microwave safe plate and cook in the microwave for about 4 minutes, until soft.

3. Add cooked onions and chicken broth to a blender and blend until smooth.

4. Drain potatoes into a colander and place drained potatoes back in the pot.
Add the Smart Balance, pureed onions and broth and a little salt and pepper. Turn flame to medium and smash using a potato masher or the back of a fork.  Mash potatoes until smooth and all the ingredients are heated.

Makes 6 (½ cup) servings


Healthy Benefits

Potatoes are high in vitamin C and have more potassium than a banana. They also contain fiber and iron.

Onions are a powerful antiseptic and are rich in vitamins A, B, and C. They also contain folic acid, calcium, iron and fiber.

Smart Balance Light is a buttery tasting spread made with a unique blend of natural oils that improves the ratio of “good” HDL to “bad” LDL2. It’s a good source of Omega-3, has 50% less fat and calories than butter or stick margarine, no trans fats or partially hydrogenated oils. It’s also Lactose-free. gluten-free and non-dairy.


Shopping Tip

You’ll find Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes in bags in the produce section of many supermarkets. I bought them at Trader Joe’s. You can also use Yukon Gold or red (new potatoes).

    The onions in this recipe give the mashed potatoes such an unexpected depth of flavor. I did miss the creaminess of regular mashed potatoes so I added 2 tbsp. of non-fat Greek yogurt. Even without the yogurt, these are delicious mashed potatoes. =)
