3 cups diced peeled yellow Finnish or baking potatoes (1 pound)
1 cup 1% low-fat milk
1 (10 1/2-ounce) can low-salt chicken broth
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a Dutch oven, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Remove pumpkin mixture from heat, and discard bay leaf.

Mash pumpkin mixture with a potato masher. Stir in sour cream and remaining ingredients.
