Servings: 1 serving
- 2 medium Gold potatoes , quartered and unpeeled
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 cloves garlic , peeled and smashed

- 1 tablespoon butter

Place the potatoes in a small saucepan. Add the milk, cream, garlic, and coriander and stir. Add a little extra milk or cream if the potatoes are not almost completely covered by the liquid.
