Like most good mashed potato recipes, the magic is in the combination of flavorful ingredients + technique. There are many ways to make delicious mashers, but this is our favorite.

– Yukon gold ptoatoes – Garlic – Ghee (or vegan butter) – Dairy free milk – Fresh herbs – Salt and pepper


Boil the potatoes. In a large pot add the potatoes and fill to cover by at least an inch with cold water. Cook for 15 – 20 minutes, until potatoes are fork tender.

Prepare the garlic ghee. Add ghee to a small saucepan and warm over medium heat. Add chopped garlic and cook, until fragrant but not brown – for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Add the garlic ghee to the potatoes. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Add the garlic infused ghee and mash using a potato masher. As you mash, add the nondairy milk a few tablespoons at a time until desired consistency is reached.

Season and serve. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Mashed potatoes always benefit from plenty of salt! Stir in fresh herbs and serve topped with a little extra melted ghee, herbs, and black pepper if desired.

Serve and enjoy!
