Expert Tips

To preserve roasted garlic longer, try storing in olive oil.

There isn’t anything more rico than sitting down to share a meal with friends and family. The potato can be converted into an excellent ally when it’s time to accompany your main dish-they pair well with almost any meal and hardly anyone can resist their full flavor. Personally, mashed potatoes are my favorite and I almost always make them dressed with cilantro and garlic; this combination makes a great side dish for meat, seafood and chicken. Roasted garlic has a delicate sabor and can give a wonderful toque to your signature dish. Try preparing these seasoned mashed potatoes during the Thanksgiving season to bring a Latin twist to your celebration or other holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s too.

Directions

  • 1 First, pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
  • 2 Take the head of garlic and cut the top off-you should be able to see the individual cloves inside. Then place the garlic over a small portion of aluminum foil and generously dress with olive oil and salt. Create a small package by wrapping the garlic completely in the foil and place in the oven for around 25 minutes.
  • 3 Afterward, let cool and remove the skin from each garlic clove. The easiest way is to press down on the outside skin and squeeze the clove out through the pre-cut side.
  • 4 Next, peel the potatoes and cut them in half. Then boil for 25 minutes or until tender. Drain the water from the pot and add the butter and milk. Use a potato masher to crush the potatoes and combine the ingredients together-the final mixture should be smooth and creamy.
  • 5 Last, incorporate the cream and peeled garlic cloves. Mix well and season with salt and pepper as desired. Garnish with chopped cilantro and you’re ready to serve.
