Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

(makes 6 servings)

1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
about 1/2 cup (120 ml) skim milk
2 teaspoons (8 g) reduced-fat margarine
1/2 tablespoon (8 g) prepared horseradish, or to taste
salt (optional)
freshly ground pepper to taste

  1. Put potatoes in a medium sauce and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place milk and margarine in a glass measuring cup and microwave on HIGH for about 45 seconds, until milk is hot and margarine has melted.
  3. Drain potatoes and mash with a potato masher or electric mixer. Beat in warmed milk mixture, whipping until potatoes have desired consistency. Stir in horseradish, salt (if using), and pepper.
  4. Transfer potatoes to a serving bowl; serve hot.
