Mashed Potatoes Updated--Cow Milk Free Goodness!


Not many foods sate all the needs that food can meet like mashed potatoes do. There’s just something decent and sound to this side dish that speaks to the fundamental yearnings for home that we all have. They've even been known to be remedies for homesickness!

However, I’ve not found that the typical cow milk substitutes are able to do the job of replicating “Mom’s mashed potatoes.” By adapting a variety of recipes I was glad to finally develop the following dairy free mashed potato recipe that meets the need yet has its own twist.

It isn’t one of those recipes that we expect to be “like Mom’s” but then turns out to have an odd taste that puts us off. It is an upfront change with a flair, yet it is every bit as satisfying, and best of all, it does not leave anyone--cow's milk allergy or no-- wishing for the original mashed potatoes.


*Some quick tips before shopping:

• When available, Yukon Gold potatoes will make your plate happy.

• The kind of salt used counts both for health and taste, ditto for olive oil.

Fresh chives and lime juice are negotiable since dried/prepackaged can work fine.


Cook Time

  • Prep time: 10 min
  • Cook time: 20 min
  • Ready in: 30 min
  • Yields: Serves 6

Instructions

  1. Peel potatoes and slice them fairly evenly.
  2. Cover potatoes with cold water in a medium-large pot and add the kosher salt.
  3. Bring to a boil, then simmer potatoes until tender, approximately 20 minutes.
  4. Drain potatoes, setting aside 1 cup of the liquid.
  5. Mash potatoes, then stir in avocado, a splash of lime juice, olive oil, chives, and pepper.
  6. If consistency needs adjusting add reserved cooking water a few tablespoons at a time until the potatoes suit your preference. (I like to alter the consistency when using scoops of potatoes in various ways--baked, etc.)
  7. Add Celtic salt to taste.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy both the dairy-free dish and the satisfied smiles around your table.
