HAPPY Mashed Potatoes
How do you usually make your mashed potatoes? I’d suggest making them however you usually do, but instead of butter, milk or cream, add a plant-based milk (make sure it’s unsweetened…we’ve accidently had vanilla mashed potatoes before, and while edible, they weren’t our favorite!)
¼-3/4 C unsweetened soymilk (or almond)
6-8 roasted garlic cloves
Chopped chives as a garnish
Wash, peel (or not, depending on your preference) and cut potatoes. Cover with water and a dash of salt and heat on high until boiling. Boil until tender when poked with a fork (could be 6-12 minutes, depending on how large your potato pieces were).
When soft, drain the water, reserving about a cup. Mash potatoes, adding the reserved water or some plant-based milk a little at a time as needed. Add roasted garlic cloves and mix. Top with chopped chives.
