Roasted garlic mashed potatoes are a savory twist on a classic side dish. Oven-roasting whole garlic bulbs transform the cloves into a soft buttery consistency with a light caramelized flavor. Fold them into light and fluffy potatoes to add more rich taste to each to each serving.
One way to instantly elevate the taste of traditional mashed potatoes is to incorporate roasted garlic. Infusing the lightly sweet and earthy notes creates a more interesting flavor profile while adding more depth to each bite. This recipe yields a light and fluffy potato puree using simple steps to remove as much excess starch are possible, followed by an important technique that incorporates all the ingredients together.
To be most efficient with your time, it’s important to follow the order of the preparation steps. Roast the whole bulb of garlic right at the start as it takes just under an hour to soften. Peel, cut, boil, and mash the potatoes as you wait. The potent and luxurious smells of the buttery and caramelized cloves will gradually fill the room. You’ll be happy that you took a few extra steps to make roasted garlic mashed potatoes to accompany your meal. You may never want to eat them plain ever again!…
