Garlic Smashed Potatoes

We’ve taken a somewhat modern approach by using Yukon Gold potatoes (or red bliss) and combining them with roasted garlic, Veggie-Glace Gold, some milk, and a minimum of butter.

What’s missing?

A lot of fat and calories but none of the taste and pleasure. Use this same method for other vegetables like turnips, cauliflower, etc.
