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.

Ingredients

  • 1 head of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 lbs. potatoes
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup liquid cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
