1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan, add garlic, cover with cold water, and cook over high heat 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
2. While the potatoes cook, place the bread in a large bowl. Spoon 23 tablespoons cooking liquid from potatoes over bread. Stir with a fork until smooth. Add yogurt, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and lemon zest and juice; stir until a smooth paste forms.
3. Place a large bowl in the sink, and set a colander on top. Drain potatoes and garlic, reserving cooking liquid. Transfer potatoes to bread mixture, and mash until smooth. Add reserved cooking liquid 2 tablespoons at a time until mixture takes on the consistency of loose mashed potatoes. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons olive oil. Cover and keep warm.
