Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Someone recently asked for holiday main dish recipes.
I realized a couple years ago that this recipe blog does not have any holiday main dish recipes. Now, I haven’t even shared my favorite holiday recipe – it is incredibly unique, incredibly awesome, and … just incredible. I may share it one day.
Holiday dinner for me have always been about the sides. Even before formally removing meat from the foods I eat, I rarely chose it. My holiday foods actually focus more on what we eat while we cook – the snacks and appetizers. Those are my favorite, and to me it is part of the holiday day – snacks enjoyed while cooking, watching parades, the dog show, and football, talking, laughing and enjoying. My food planning is just as much about the appetizers and snacks as the sides and desserts.
By the time the actual meal rolls around, my plate is sorta small and is just a festival of sides. Perfect.
This Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes recipe is one of my favorite ways to make mashed potatoes – simple yet flavorful. The olive oil finish adds a wonderful flavor and roasted garlic is always a good thing.
Of course, if you want a super decadent bowl of taters for the holidays, you can always make my Perfect Mashed Potatoes, which have rich cream cheese and another unexpected flavor component.
Our Savory Shiitake Rosemary Gravy is a perfect topping for any mashed potatoes…
Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
inspired by Cooking Light’s Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes
YIELD: 3 cups / 6 servings
dairy, egg, soy and gluten free, vegan
2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, quartered
2 cubes vegetable bouillon
1/3 cup cashew milk
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons Arbequina Olive Oil, divided
1 head roasted garlic
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Place potato pieces in large stock pot, cover with water and add bouillon. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Simmer 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender.
Meanwhile, combine cashew milk and apple cider vinegar, whisk and set aside. This combination creates a buttermilk substitute.
Drain water from potatoes, returning potatoes to pot. Add buttermilk mixture, one tablespoon olive oil, roasted garlic, salt and pepper. Using a potato masher, mash to desired consistency.
Transfer Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes to serving bowl, drizzle with remaining two tablespoons olive oil.
