Bring potatoes, rosemary sprig and enough cold water to cover by 2 inches to boil in large saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer 18-20 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain potatoes; discard rosemary. Microwave milk and broth in microwave-proof cup until hot, 1 minute. Return potatoes to saucepan and cook 2 minutes over low heat to dry. Coarsely mash potatoes with potato masher or large wooden spoon. Stir in broth mixture, salt and pepper until well combined and heated through.

Yield: 6 servings

  • I'm sure these are good, and I appreciate nonfattening recipes, but referring to foods as "guilty" or "guiltless" makes us seem like idiots. There is nothing "guilty" about food, and I get really sick of using that word to describe basic, good nourishing food. I guess I am just sick of the Food Police!!

  • Tasty alternative to the traditional higher fat content mashed potatoes.
