Vegan Mashed Potatoes


This is a light and flavorful alternative to calorie-packed mashed potatoes! I got the recipe from a cooking class in Cambridge, MA.

  • 2 pounds russet potatoes

  • 8 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed

  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary

  • 1 sprig fresh thyme

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place potatoes, garlic, rosemary, and thyme in a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Cook, covered, until potatoes are easily pierced with a knife, about 30 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking water.

  2. Transfer boiled potatoes and garlic to a bowl; discard rosemary and thyme. Add olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mash with a potato masher, adding cooking water to reach desired consistency.
