Healthy Mashed Potatoes

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Boil potatoes for 20 minutes until fork tender. Once cooked, drain well and add to a large bowl or stand mixer.
  2. Add olive oil, flax milk, Greek yogurt, and spices to the potatoes. Mix on low speed until smooth. (Don’t over mix!) Add in ½ of cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese. Stir to combine.
  3. Put mashed potatoes in an oven safe dish ( 8×8 works well) and top with remaining cheddar and parmesan cheese.

    2. For the pesto, place all ingredients in a food processor and whiz until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap. Chill until needed.
    3. Place stock and milk in a saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil then, stirring constantly, add polenta in a slow, steady stream. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring, for 6-8 minutes until thick. Stir in parmesan, ricotta and butter. Season.
