Mashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Red Onion
This recipe serves:   
4 large potatoes (Idaho or russet)
about 1 cup Basic Chicken Stock (see recipe), or low-sodium canned
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons finely diced red onion
3 tablespoons low-fat sour cream

Cooking Instructions
1. Peel the potatoes and cut them in half. Place them in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender when pricked with a fork, about 30 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes. Drain.

2. Bring the stock to a boil, and turn down to a simmer.

3. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or fork, or use a food mill. Slowly add the stock until the desired consistency is reached.

4. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste. Fold in the sour cream and red onion.
