I scaled this back for 2 serves and used Carisma potatoes (a low GI potato) and found there was plenty for 3 of us, made as per instructions to create a lovely smooth and tasty mash. Thanks to weekend cooker for the recommendation and Sydney Mike for posting, made for I Recommend tag game.
- 8 medium potatoes, peeled, sliced
- 1 medium onion, sliced thin
- 1 1⁄2 cups buttermilk (actually ALMOST 1 1/2 cups)
- 4 green onions, trimmed
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt, to taste
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground pepper, to taste

- In lightly salted boiling water, cook potatoes until just tender, about 15-20 minutes, then drain.
- In a saucepan over low heat, cook the onion in buttermilk for 5 minutes.
- Add onion & buttermilk to potatoes & mash well, to a creamy consistency.
