Low Fat Yogurt Mashed Potatoes

Total Time

This is one I came up with as a variation of mashed potatoes with sour cream. By substituting fat free or low fat plain yogurt you can reduce the fat in this favourite without compromising on flavour.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes in water till tender. Mince the onions finely.
  2. Peel them when hot.
  3. Mash the potatoes with a ricer/fork.
  4. Let them cool a bit.
  5. Add the salt and pepper, onions, then add the yogurt and the parsley.

I found this recipe in Cuisine Tonight magazine and came to post after making it and found this - YEAH!! don't have to post!! It's close with only some minor changes that I think really add to it. Added ` tablespoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon minced lemon zest and minced scallions instead of onions. It was awesome. Served with Greek Chicken Cutlets and made for a wonderful fresh, dinner that was pretty enough for company.

Way too bland. I had to add parmesan, garlic powder, etc.

I used 2 cups of plain fat-free yoghurt and 1 1/2 onions, and, 4 tbsps. of parsley. This was very good as a side dish. Thank you!
