  • 1 saucepan to boil water


  • 1 lb. white potatoes
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon parsley chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Start boiling water in the medium saucepan and add sea salt to the water.
  • Do not peel the potatoes (unless you want to). Cut your potatoes into quarters. If your potatoes are round, you will cut twice - lengthwise to split the potato, and then one more time to quarter it.
  • Add potato pieces to the boiling water and boil until you can pierce them with a fork. It should take 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile chop your garlic.
  • Once potatoes are boiled, remove them from the saucepan. Add butter to the empty saucepan, allow it to melt and then add garlic. Cook for 3 minutes until garlic is golden and flavorful.
  • Next add cream and reduce the heat, cook garlic with cream for about 5 minutes.
  • Add drained potatoes to this cream sauce. Use salt and pepper - just a bit, to taste.
  • Add chopped parsley and mix well. Done!
