directions

  • 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.
  • 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. :)

    Oh, Diner, thank you for posting this! I was admittedly skeptical that this dish would be as good as my usual mashed potatoes, but I'm tossing away my sour cream and cheese mashed potato recipe now! This is SO good, I'm going to suggest we have this as our "mashies" for Christmas dinner ! I left the skins on the red potatoes (how pretty!), and only needed about 1/2 cup of the potato water. Awesome recipe, Diner - thanks again! Made for 1-2-3 Hits.

    This is a great potato dish. Using olive oil gives it a different taste from my usual mashed potatoes. And the onions and garlic go so well with it.

<p>I am a stay at home mom of two children, although, both now are in college. I am a retired Occupational Therapist. I received my degree from the Ohio State University and am a huge fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes. <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=DEREK08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/DEREK08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><br /><br />I have so many cook books that it is hard to pick one as my favorite, but would say I have used the Betty Crocker Cookbook the most since getting married for basic recipes. <br />I love to cook and try new recipes, but prefer simple and quick recipes. I don't like to cook things that require going to specialized grocery stores. I subscribe to several cooking magazines, that usually, require everyday on-hand ingredients. <br /><br />I am not very fond of most seafood, but do enjoy lobster, grilled shrimp and chilean sea bass. I won't cook anything with rosemary or curry, as I really don't like either herbs' flavor. And now from trying recipes, I found that I don't like dijon mustard, but love vinegar and mustard, not sure why I don't like the taste of dijon mustard.</p> <p><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/ZWT3-Participation.gif border=0 alt=Photo /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/RecipeSwap2.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/CLC1.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view?t=gumnuts.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/gumnuts.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Diner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><br /><br />Adopted banner: <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/TasteofYellowSTICKER.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/ZWT4/gastronomic%20gauchos/GGneon-logo.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BBQlSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/ZaarStar-AMBanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/CROCKPOTSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/bayhill/footballpool-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/akplongmeadow/AdoptATag2-2-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/BreakfastanytimeSTCK.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/totmtaggame-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/stats.php?site=diner524 target=_top><img src=http://beta.easyhitcounters.com/counter/index.php?u=diner524&amp;s=blgrv border=0 alt=Website hspace=4 vspace=2 align=middle /></a> <br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/ target=_top>Free Counter</a> <br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=lazymecookathon.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/lazymecookathon.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/AMPageBanner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/captain.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view&curren;t=Samsbutton.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/Samsbutton.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a></p>
