It’s time to start planning the menus for our upcoming celebrations. If you usually serve your Christmas or New Year’s dinner with mashed potatoes, you will enjoy this recipe! It is quick to prepare in a single utensil and without the need for a strainer because you won’t need to drain the potatoes!
Yes, with this recipe you don’t have to boil potatoes in a large amount of water. With the Rena Ware “water-less” cooking method it is easier to take advantage of the nutritional value of the potatoes because they absorb all the liquid preventing vitamins and minerals from being lost in water.
Once you try this cooking method, you will never prepare mashed potatoes the traditional way.
Start by slicing the potatoes. Depending on how large they are, cut them in half or in quarters to a uniform size, approximately 3 centimeters across. Remember not to remove the skin! Place the potatoes in the Queen Cooker 8 L and add the chicken broth.
Cover the utensil with the valve in the open position and cook over medium high heat. After the water seal has formed, reduce the temperature, close the valve and cook for 20 more minutes. With this method, the potatoes will absorb all the liquid inside the utensil and nothing is wasted.
When potatoes are soft and cooked, mash them with the Masher from the Kitchen Tool Set or with a Spoonula until they fall apart and reach the desired consistency. If you want richer tasting potatoes with more texture, leave some potato pieces.
Finally, add the butter or olive oil, chopped scallions, yogurt, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and if necessary, add more chicken broth until the potatoes have the consistency you like best.
Piece of cake, right? This recipe is perfect to prepare for Christmas dinner, a New Year celebration or any day of the year! Try this recipe the next time you need to make mashed potatoes and let us know how much you like them!
