Rosemary Mashed Potatoes
LoSalt for boiling potatoes
1 pound red-skinned potatoes, washed and cut into 1-inch cubes
3 tablespoons light cream cheese
2 tablespoons fat free milk
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon LoSalt
Pinch garlic powder
Cook potatoes in a large pot of boiling water laced with LoSalt until tender, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, using a hand mixer in a medium mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and milk on low speed until well combined.
Drain the cooked potatoes and transfer to the bowl with the cream cheese. Beat in the potatoes, rosemary, LoSalt and garlic until combined and leaving some lumps. Serve immediately.
