Nothing is more comforting than a delicious bowl of mashed potatoes. Add a kick of flavor to your potatoes with Litehouse® freeze dried garlic and herbs for an easy side dish.


  • 1 pound russet Idaho® potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 tablespoon Litehouse® freeze dried garlic 
  • 1 tablespoon Litehouse® freeze dried chives
  • 1 tablespoon Litehouse® freeze dried dill

  1. Place potatoes in a medium pot and cover with water, by one inch. Add salt and garlic. Bring to a boil. 
  2. Lower heat and simmer gently for 15 minutes, uncovered. 
  3. Add chives and dill. Continue simmering until potatoes are for tender, about 5 more minutes.
