All it takes is 5 ingredients and 15 minutes, and you have a deliciously cheesy, spicy post-work snack that doubles as the perfect party appetizer.
Molecularly Creamy Mashed Potatoes
The traditional way to make creamy mashed potatoes is to add loads of butter and cream.

You can check out the full recipe here, and buy diastatic malt powder here. Want to learn more?
