Delicious! "I made it w/o adding any potatoes and just 2 TBSP butter, whipped to a silky amazing texture in the food processor, perfect amt of garlic, just a sprinkle of fresh ground black pepper. Super easy, I will be making and sharing this recipe for years!
Don't be alarmed by the large amount of garlic; cooking it in milk mellows the flavor. Try this puree in place of basic mashed potatoes.
