Tangy yogurt smashed potato croquettes

Submitted by: CCKELLY3

Introduction

Using up some plain, lowfat kefir and some baby potatoes, with skins.

I make these into 'croquettes' so that I can easily grab a serving from leftovers without having to remeasure.

Down the road I'd like to roll these in a whole grain cracker and herb coating to finish.

Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    4-5 small red potatoes (about 300-350g)
    4-5 ounces lowfat plain kefir
    1 Tablespoon butter
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or
    1 clove garlic minced
    1/4 teaspoon mustard seed, ground
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Makes 5 quarter-cup sized croquettes.

1. Cut potatoes into small pieces and bring to a boil in salted water. Reduce flame and simmer 5-10 minutes until just done, but don't overcook or they'll get water logged and lose flavor. Drain. Let them cool about 5 minutes so that the heat of them doesn't kill the live cultures in the kefir.

2. Add half the kefir, the butter and seasonings and using a potato masher, just smash until they start to get creamy but still have whole bits of potato. Add as much kefir as necessary to get the creamy consistency to your liking and also to make them tangy.

3. Using a 1/4 cup measure, scoop the potatoes into and and press firmly. Using a small rubber scraper, scrape off excess then scoop out the potatoes so they roughly keep the shape of the measuring cup. Make sure they're tightly packed so when they cool, you'll have easy to grab, already measured servings. Reheat for 30 seconds in the microwave and enjoy.
