Avocado Mashed Potatoes

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins



  1. Peel and quarter the potatoes, then wash them thoroughly.
  2. Place the potatoes in a large pot with enough cold, salted water to cover them and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 min, or until cooked through, and drain.
  3. Meanwhile put butter, lemon and garlic in a saucepan over very, very low. Let it simmer for 20-30 minutes. Discard lemon and garlic.
  4. When potatoes are done, drain and mashed to your liking. Fold in avocado and butter.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. If you like creamer mashed potatoes, you can add some milk.

I really love this recipe. It's creamy and flavourful. And I love the added texture of the avocados. Really wonderful.

Gave it 3 stars because I did not make this recipe, but this idea did not carry over to pre-cooked mashed potatoes.

Mixed fork-crushed avocado with stiff mashed potatoes; rested on stove 10 minutes while we had salad. Potatoes & avocado had turned to SOUP in the meantime.

WARNING: Might be OK made exactly as stated and served immediately... but turned my leftover mashed potatoes into soup!
