New York Times mocked for sharing mashed potato recipe.
The New York Times was mocked on Twitter after sharing a “two-ingredient” mashed potato recipe - that actually lists four ingredients.
NYT shared the two-year-old recipe on their official Twitter account along with a colorful infographic. It calls for two pounds of russet potatoes, 1/4 cup of sour cream, and salt and pepper.
The infographic simplifies the recipe in just a few steps: Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft. Reserve 1 cup cooking water. Drain and mash potatoes. Stir in reserved water 1 tablespoon at a time. Add sour cream, salt, and pepper. The recipe link says that sour cream can be substituted for full fat Greek yogurt.
