    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Boil potatoes, onion, and garlic in salted water over high heat. Cook until tender, 15 minutes. Drain potatoes, reserving 1 cup cooking water. Return potatoes to pot over medium heat, and briefly to evaporate excess moisture.
    2. 2
      Off heat, add oil and cayenne. Mash potatoes to desire consistency, adding reserved cooking water as needed if potatoes are too dry.

      As others have said, these are a simple but tasty version of nondairy mashed potatoes. I have tried making the dish vegan using soy milk or other liquids, but it always came out awful, so I really appreciate these.

      These potatoes were creamy without being oily. They had a great flavour and I didn't miss using dairy at all! I didn't have red potatoes so I used russets. The only thing I would change about this recipe is the number of servings - the 4 of us all wanted a bigger portion! Made for Almost 5 tag game. Thanks diner524! :)

      These mashed potatoes were awesome. My picky dh loved them. He didn't mind the olive oil/garlic flavor and never missed the dairy products at all. These potatoes, were still creamy, light and fluffy with a little added zing from the cayenne pepper. I will be making these again often. Thank you so much for sharing your delicious recipe. :)
