How do I make these healthy mashed potatoes?

It’s so easy! You’ll love this. In just two or three simple steps you have these chunky mashed potatoes ready for the table.

First you need to put all the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Make sure the potatoes are tender, add more time if necessary.

Next we drain off the water and put all the potatoes back into the saucepan. Add in the buttermilk and butter. Coarsely mash the potatoes and then top with chopped chives, salt, and pepper.
