Fluffy Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes
As for your potatoes—they are practically begging for great EVOO. For simple and crowd-pleasing sweet potatoes, coat diced sweet potatoes in harmonious, elegant Vranas Estate extra-virgin olive oil, a little bit of honey and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Then season and roast in a 400-degree oven until tender and perfect. Now watch them disappear.
And if you’re smart, you’ll whip up these ridiculously fluffy and easy mashed potatoes, made all the more delicious with fruity and aromatic Gaea Sitia Region extra-virgin olive oil.
Gobble, gobble! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from the Gaea family.
6 large baking potatoes (about 5 pounds), peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
½ cup Gaea Sitia Region extra-virgin olive oil
10 garlic cloves, peeled
Salt and pepper
In a large saucepan, boil salted water. Add potatoes and garlic and cook until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes.
Drain potatoes and garlic, reserving some cooking liquid. Mash potatoes and garlic. Add olive oil, mixing well. If potatoes are too thick, use reserved cooking liquid to bring to desired consistency.
Season and enjoy!
