High Protein Garlic Mashed Potatoes
These mashed potatoes have a delicious buttery and garlicky flavor, and lots of texture from the potato skins. The mashed potatoes boast a whopping 11 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber per serving. Use them as a main dish by adding some cooked veggies and toppings like ketchup, salsa, BBQ sauce, or buttery spread, or serve them as a high-protein side dish to any meal.
- 10 to 12 large organic red potatoes
- 3 to 3 1/2 cups cooked navy beans (two 15-oz cans)
- 1/4 cup soy-free Earth Balance buttery spread
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened/unflavoured almond milk
- 4 to 5 large cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- Other herbs and seasonings as desired
Wash potatoes with a potato scrubber, chop into large chunks, and toss into a large pot. I prefer to leave the skin on, but you can peel if desired.
Fill pot with water until potatoes are covered. Cook on medium-high heat for about 30-35 minutes until fork tender. Drain potatoes and place in a large bowl.
Drop in garlic cloves into a food processor (running) and process until finely chopped. Add drained and rinsed beans, salt, paprika, and process until mostly smooth.
After cooling potatoes for a few minutes, take a potato masher and mash until desired consistency is achieved. Now add your milk and butter, and keep mashing.
Add processed bean mixture to potato mixture and mash until smooth. Sprinkle with black pepper, other herbs, and additional sea salt.
Serve with butter, salsa, ketchup, or BBQ sauce, and a serving of cooked veggies to round out the meal.
