Simple Steamer Mashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives

Mashed Potaotes with Sour Cream Chives is rated 3.3 / 5 based on 16 votes.


For a healthier option, use low-sodium chicken broth and low-fat sour cream. If you make it with regular sour cream, it is a more filling dish, and along with green beans and garlic toast this dish makes a great meatless meal that’s easy and quick.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: approximately 15 minutes


  • 550-600 g (19-21 oz) potatoes (about 4 medium-size potatoes) unpeeled, cut into approximately 2.5 cm (1 inch) pieces
  • ¼ cup warmed chicken broth
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 ½ tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place potato pieces in a steamer basket over boiling water.
  2. Cover and steam for about 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl. Add the broth, and mash the potatoes either with a hand mixer or potato masher. Stir in the sour cream and chives.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
