Creamy Dairy-Free Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes can be creamy without butter, milk, or cream. Either chicken stock or broth can be used, although stock has fewer ingredients. These are luscious and super healthy.

  • 2 pounds baking potatoes, scrubbed

  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken stock, or more as needed

  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed, or more to taste

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley, or to taste


  1. Cut each potato into quarters. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and let dry.

  2. Return potatoes to the same pot. Add chicken stock and garlic and mash potatoes with a potato masher. Add more stock if needed for desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley.

Cook's Notes:

Including the potato's peel adds fiber and makes a more rustic finished dish. Remove the peel if you prefer.

If salted broth or stock is used, taste often so you don't create an overly salty dish.
