|Parsley Smashed New Potatoes|
|By Cindy Weber|
|Delicious way to make potatoes without the butter and milk! If new potatoes are not available, use any small red potatoes. (Try it next week!)
|2 pounds new or baby red potatoes, (1- to 2-inch diameter), large ones quartered
2/3 cup low-fat plain yogurt
2 scallions, cut in half lengthwise and finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 teaspoon salt
White or freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 Clove fresh garlic
|Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add potatoes, cover and steam until very tender when pierced with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes. (Check the water level near the end of steaming to be sure the pan doesn’t boil dry. Add more boiling water as needed.)
Meanwhile, combine yogurt, scallions, parsley, butter, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Mix the cooked potatoes into the yogurt mixture, breaking them up with a fork until they crumble apart and lightly clump together.
