This mouth-watering side dish is exactly what you need in your life and your dinner table! The best part of food is not the main course but those tasty side dishes you get to tuck in! Side dishes always add flavor to the food. And when you can whip them easily with just a few main ingredients in 15 – 20 minutes, that’s all a foodie, and a cook would want. Creamy mashed potatoes are one of the recipes that fall in that category. The gorgeousness of this recipe is not the butter but the milk! The milk adds more creaminess and warmth to the recipe which is precisely what is expected of this tasty dish. You can cook it for a simple family dinner or that brunch party you’re throwing on Saturdays.

Health Benefits:

Potatoes have more to them than meets the eye. The potassium in potatoes is good at lowering blood pressure. Since potatoes are high in carbohydrates, they contain high amounts of glucose which promotes good functioning of the brain. They also contain iron which is responsible for delivering oxygen to the brain.  Potatoes being rich in vitamin C can help better digestion and can also reduce inflammation in the intestines as well as the digestive system.
