  • 4 Large Yukon gold potatoes diced into cubes
  • 7 Large Cloves garlic cut in half
  • 1/4 Cup Low sodium chicken broth

  • 1/4 tsp Italian herb seasoning
  • 3/4 tsp Granulated garlic

  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into small cubes. Peel the garlic cloves and slice them in half.
  • Put potatoes and garlic in a large pot with salt and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil.
  • Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Check with a fork by poking the potatoes.
  • Strain the potatoes and garlic in a colander and then transfer them back to the pot.

  • Optionally top the potatoes with green onions or chives to serve.

  • To drain the potatoes and garlic, you can either use a colander or place a lid on the pot carefully and tip it over the sink.
