Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Dairy free, gluten free and packed with garlicy flavor – these creamy mashed potatoes couldn’t be easier.
- 2 lbs of potatoes, Yukon Gold or German Butterball are best for this
- 6 cloves of garlic, peeled
- 1 Tablespoon Grind Spice Co Colorado Garlic Pepper
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 3 Tablespoons Rocky Mountain Olive Oil Garlic Infused Olive Oil
- 1 Tablespoons Rocky Mountain Olive Oil Butter Infused Olive Oil
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. As the water heats, wash and peel the potatoes, then cut into 1-inch chunks. Remove the skins from the garlic cloves, but leave them whole.
Once the water is boiling, add the potatoes, cloves of garlic and 2 teaspoons of salt to the pot. Cook the potatoes and garlic at a brisk simmer until potatoes are tender, 15 – 20 minutes.
Once the potatoes are tender, drain them and the garlic, reserving 1 cup of cooking liquid. In a large bowl, mash the potatoes and garlic. Add in the Garlic Olive Oil and Butter Olive Oil, and mix to create a homogenous mix. Then thin out the mixture to a desired consistency using the reserved cooking liquid. Mix in Garlic Pepper Seasoning and season with additional salt to taste.
