Truffled Mashed Potatoes

Truffled Mashed Potatoes

Serves 6

30 minutes or fewer

In France, fresh truffles are sometimes referred to as “black diamonds,” fetching as much as $500 per pound. Truffle oil provides the same complex flavor at a fraction of the price. (Truffle oils vary in intensity, so start with the smallest amount recommended and adjust according to taste.)
  • 2 lb. fingerling or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 large cloves garlic, peeled and halved
  • 2-3 Tbs. truffle oil
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped parsley

1. Bring potatoes, garlic, and enough water to cover all by 1 inch to a boil in medium saucepan. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft when pricked with fork. Drain, and reserve 1 cup cooking liquid.

2. Return potatoes and garlic to saucepan; mash with reserved cooking water until smooth. Stir in truffle oil and parsley, and season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Truffles are not something I want to eat. Nor is mashing potatoes with OIL. for Vegan potatoes can use soy milk or other vegan products. Not appetizing to be made with any type of truffle - an ingredient that is a MOLD!

My family and I loved this recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Though I did add some butter ;)
