The secret to really good mashed potatoes is to fully cook the potatoes and whip them until past the point you think you should stop!
|Dairy Free Mashed Potatoes|
1 pound potato peeled and quartered
2 tbsp olive oil
Almond milk as needed (about 1/4 cup)
How to prepare dairy free mashed potatoes:
Boil the potatoes until fork tender (about 25 minutes). Drain the pan and begin to mash the potatoes either with a hand masher or with a mixer (turned off for now). Moisten the potatoes with the olive oil and a small amount of the almond milk. Begin to mash more vigoursly (or turn the electric mixer on) adding almond milk as you go until the potatoes reach the desired consistancy. Remember you can always add more liquid, but you can't remove any! [Note: if you can't have almonds then try hemp milk. Rice milk will also work but it is thinner so you'll use less.]
I find that a pound of potatoes to start yields about 3 servings so adjust as needed.
