Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This simple, delicious recipe is always one of our most popular, and for good reason. Smashing (rather than mashing) the potatoes retains more flavor and fiber.

The reason: Most of the potato’s nutrition is stored under the skin, so you really should not peel unless necessary for a particular recipe. Pairing potatoes with garlic unleashes even more immune-boosting, cancer-fighting benefits.
