Very good! Boiled the potatoes in vegetable broth, drained the potatoes, and then added broth back in when mashing. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 cups potatoes, peeled and cut
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can chicken broth (regular or reduced fat)
  • salt and pepper, to taste (the broth has enough salt for most people but taste them first and season if you wish)


  1. Boil potatoes until tender and drain well.
  2. Combine potatoes and broth in a bowl and mash to desired consistency.
  3. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
  4. Tip: For a 'buttery' look without the butter, add a few granules of chicken bouillon- Thanks SusieQusie! You could also add some butter flavored granules like Butter Buds or Molly McButter).
