  • 4 lbs. Russets potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2/3 cup Olive Orchards of Georgia olive oil plus more for drizzling
  • 4 cloves garlic gently smashed and peeled
  • 2 rosemary fresh sprigs, about 3 inches each. Stems removed and leaves chopped lightly
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest small strips
  • 1 cup vegetable broth warmed
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  • In a large stock pot, add enough cold water to cover the potatoes over an 1 inch. Add 1 tbsp. salt. Bring to a boil and cook until very tender, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  •  Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat 2/3 cup olive oil on medium heat. Add the garlic, rosemary, lemon zest, crushed red pepper, and 1/4 tsp. salt,  stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.
  •  Drain the potatoes.  Push the potatoes through a potato ricer back into the pot, or return the potatoes to the pot and mash with a potato masher. Strain the oil mixture into the potatoes and add 1 cup warm vegetable broth.  Add seasoning from oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Transfer the potatoes to a bowl, drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with the parsley.
