With their crispy golden crust and a creamy whipped center flecked with fresh scallions, these Garlicky Potato Mounds are an elevated take on classic comfort food. Serve two mounds per plate for an elegant presentation.
pareve | passover | gluten-free | freezes well | yields 10-12 mounds
4-5 medium potatoes, (Idaho or Yukon Gold), peeled and cut into chunks
4-5 cloves garlic
1/2 cup (approximately) vegetable broth
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 scallions, thinly sliced
- In a large saucepan, combine potatoes and garlic. Add enough lightly salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat; drain well.
- Return potatoes and garlic to saucepan and place back on the heat for 1-2 minutes to evaporate any excess moisture. Remove from heat.
- Mash potatoes and garlic until smooth. Gradually blend in broth, oil, salt, and pepper. Whip until light and creamy. Stir in scallions.
- Line a rimmed baking with parchment paper.
- Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop rounded mounds of potato mixture onto prepared baking sheet. (Can be made in advance up to this point.)
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, until crusty.
- Dry, mealy potatoes have high starch content and are perfect for baked or mashed potatoes. Waxy potatoes have lower starch content and are best for boiling, scalloped potatoes, or potato salad.
- If you don’t know which type of potato you have, put it in a brine of 2 Tbsp salt dissolved in 1½ cups cold water. Mealy potatoes will sink; waxy ones will float.
- If your potatoes are tinged with green, cut off and discard any green parts. The green layer under the skin is called solanin and is poisonous.
