These potatoes are creamy, full of flavor, and dairy free! They’re easily customizable.
My husband has a dairy allergy so for the most part we have a dairy free kitchen. I personally eat dairy so I buy a few things such as cheese and yogurt for myself. We typically keep ice cream in the freezer, too, because ice cream. Other than that we use almond milk and lactose free butters/cream cheeses.
We both love potatoes. Sweet potatoes. Fried potatoes. Scalloped potatoes. French potat… I mean fries. I love french fries. We wanted some mashed potatoes so I made some without dairy and it was scrumptious. Nick had seconds! It was quite simple and only took 7 ingredients. You start by washing and scrubbing your potatoes. We like the skin left on, but how much you peel off is up to you. Then you chop and boil.
They take about 20 minutes. You will know they’re finished when you can pierce them with a fork. Next, you drain them and put them in a bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. I started with 1/2 cup butter and milk and added more as I went. I used a hand mixer to mix mine together but you can use a potato masher or even the backside of a fork. Mash longer for less chunky, and vice versa.
We had these with jalapeno turkey burgers and salad/steamed veggies.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- 8 medium sized potatoes (I used these)
- 1/2 tsp salt (or more, depending on preference)
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/2- 1 cup ghee (or other butter)
- 1/2- 1 cup almond milk (or other milk)
- 3 tbsp garlic
- Scrub potatoes and peel off the desired amount of skin. Cut potatoes into quarter inch cubes.
- In a large pot, bring about 8 cups of water to a boil with the potatoes. Cover and reduce heat for about 20 minutes. Check your potatoes by piercing them with a fork.
- Drain potatoes and put into a large bowl. Add in the remaining ingredients.
- Use a mixer, mix and mash everything together until the potatoes reach desired consistency.
- Add more salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve warm!
Note: I have found that when I reheat them, I need to add more milk to cream them up a little bit!
