Servings 10 People
- 4 Lbs Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1 inch thick slices
- 3-4 tsp Salt + more for boiling
- 2 Tbsp Butter
- 2 Cups Plain, non fat Greek yogurt
- 1/2 Cup Unsweetened almond milk or skim milk
Place the potatoes in a large pot with generously salted, COLD water (about 1 1/2 tsp of salt in the water) and cover at least an inch.
Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover and reduce the temperature slightly to maintain a low boil. Cook until the potatoes can be pierced easily with a fork with almost no resistance, about 20-25 minutes. Drain well and place back into the pot.
Melt the butter in a small bowl.
In a separate, microwave-safe bowl, whisk the yogurt and almond milk and microwave until it's JUST warm, being careful not to curdle it. Mine took about minute, whisking ever 15 seconds.
Pour the butter and about 1/4 of the yogurt mixture into the potatoes and then mash them.
Stir in the remaining yogurt mixture along with 3-4 tsp of salt, to taste (we liked 4 tsp).
