1 Scrub the potatoes with a brush under cold running water. Peel the potatoes and cut them into quarters. Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan with cold water to cover and salt to taste. Cover and bring to a simmer. Cook 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife. Drain the potatoes, reserving some of the water.
2 Dry the pan in which the potatoes were cooked. Add 2 tablespoons of the oil and the garlic and cook over medium heat until the garlic is just fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the potatoes and parsley to the pan. Mash the potatoes with a masher or a fork, stirring them well to blend them with the garlic and parsley. Add the remaining oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Add a little of the cooking water if needed. Serve immediately.
VARIATION: Mashed Potatoes with Olives: Stir in 2 tablespoons chopped black or green olives just before serving.
