Easy Mashed Potatoes

This recipe serves: 
1 medium potato (Idaho or russet)
about 2 1/2 tablespoons Basic Chicken Stock (see recipe), or low-sodium canned
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon freshly chopped parsley
2 teaspoons fat-free 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 parsley (optional).

Serving Size: about 1/2 cup
