Place potatoes, garlic, ½ tsp of the salt and some water in a pot. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat.
Simmer for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Drain well and return potatoes and garlic to the pot.
Mash with a potato masher and stir in the remaining ingredients to form a smooth mixture.
Serve as a side dish with a meat dish of your choice.
For a cheesy flavour stir in 2 tbsp buttermilk or plain smooth low-fat cottage cheese.
Make mash with different veggies. A combination of potatoes and sweet potatoes or butternut and even carrot work well.
Fresh or dried herbs can be added to mash, like origanum, parsley or thyme.
