Recipe by Mimi Bobeck
READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Separate head of garlic into individual cloves.
  • Toss in olive oil and wrap tightly in small piece of aluminum foil.
  • Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven for 45 minutes.
  • When the garlic has cooled to the touch you should be able to squeeze it out of the 'paper' shell of the individual cloves.
  • Mash the roasted garlic with a fork, or force through a fine strainer.
  • If you use a ricer as recommended below, simply rice the garlic along with the potatoes.
  • Peel and boil potatoes in salted water until tender.
  • Force the cooked potatoes through a ricer (recommended) or mash by your usual method.
  • Put the riced potatoes, garlic, sour cream, butter, and salt and white pepper in a mixer bowl, and whip at medium speed until smooth.
  • Add cream or milk to adjust consistency.
