4 large russet potatoes
1/2 cup organic cream
¼ cup grated organic parmesan cheese
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp. Alpha Canadian Camelina Oil
1 tbsp. chives
¼ tsp. salt
Pepper to taste
Parsley for garnish
1 Tbsp. Alpha Canadian Camelina Oil
Begin to bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Cut potatoes in quarter pieces. We like the skins on, you can peel if preferred.
Add potatoes to water and let boil for 15-20 minutes; until firm but can be easily pierced with a fork.
While potatoes are boiling, add minced garlic to 1 teaspoon of Camelina to pan on low heat. Let sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Drain water from potatoes and begin to mash potatoes.
Add cream and sautéed garlic to potatoes and mash together.
Fold in parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and most of the chives.
Once plated, drizzle 1 Tablespoon Camelina over the potatoes and garnish with remaining chives and parsley.
Serve alone or as a delicious side. Watch your guests smile!
