Ingredients

  • sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1  Cup  low-fat milk
  • cloves garlic, peeled
  • scallions, sliced
  • 5  Cups  finely shredded green cabbage (about 1 pound)
  • medium Yukon Gold potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2  Tablespoons  chopped fresh parsley

Directions

Tie thyme sprigs with twine or in a cheesecloth bag. Combine milk, garlic, and thyme in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer gently until garlic is soft, 5 to 10 minutes. Discard thyme.

Transfer the milk mixture to a blender and purée until smooth. Return to the pan and stir in scallions. Cover and set aside.

Bring 1 inch salted water to a boil in a large pot.

Add cabbage, cover, and cook until very tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well.

Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return to the pan. Mash with a potato masher or hand-held electric mixer.

Gradually add the milk mixture to the potatoes, stirring until smooth. Stir in cabbage and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a warmed bowl and garnish with parsley.

Make Ahead Tip: The potatoes can be prepared up to 1 hour ahead and kept warm, covered, over a larger pan of barely simmering water.
