Healthier Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Mims Squims

Instead of butter & cream, this recipe gets most of its flavor from fat-free chicken broth and oven roasted garlic.

Great recipe - I did a slightly different twist I added Chicken soup powder to the water as the potatoes were cooking, saved a bit of the water to mash in with the potatoes, already had roasted garlic MMMmm good. I did not use any salt Thanks I will be making these again & again and promise a better photo
