Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

I love mashed potatoes, but those in restaurants are filled with excess cream and butter. I found a way to make them taste rich without the extra calories and fat. I’ve added goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes—absolutely delicious.

1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wrap the garlic cloves in foil and bake for about 15 minutes, or until tender. Allow to cool, then squeeze the garlic out of the skin and set aside.

2. Place the potatoes in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook the potatoes for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain well, return to the saucepan and cover to keep warm.

3. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, sour cream, chicken stock, goat cheese, roasted garlic, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher until well combined. Garnish with the chopped basil and serve.

2 Tbsp olive oil
