Olive Oil-Infused Mashed Potatoes

How to Make It

Step 1

Place potatoes in a Dutch oven, and add cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil over high. Reduce heat to medium-high, and simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are fork-tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and let stand at room temperature until potatoes look dry and chalky, about 10 minutes. Return potatoes to Dutch oven.

Step 2

While potatoes simmer, bring olive oil, rosemary, and thyme to a gentle simmer in a saucepan over low. Cook, stirring once, until mixture is fragrant and herbs have darkened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool 10 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, press oil mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a small bowl. Discard rosemary and thyme.

Step 3

Mash potatoes with a potato masher until all large chunks are broken down and potatoes are fluffy. Stir in herb-infused oil, yogurt, butter, salt, and finely ground pepper until blended. Garnish with coarsely ground pepper and herb leaves.
