Today I am sharing a twist on a classic potato dish – Garlic Chive Mashed Potatoes. The trick to infusing these mashed potatoes with the right amount of garlic flavour is by sautéing the minced garlic in dairy-free butter! Garlic can have a strong aftertaste when consumed raw so by sautéing them first, we are removing that strong flavour. The chives add a wonderful scent and taste to this recipe without overpowering the garlic. This recipe also only take 45 minutes to make and is perfect for the colder season!
For this recipe, I am using EarthFresh Organic Yellow Potatoes: Best for Mashing, organic garlic, fresh chives, vegan butter and plain almond milk. EarthFresh potatoes are delicious and found at most Canadian grocers. I usually find it challenging to locate organic potatoes at the grocers so it is great to find an accessible brand.
Well I hope you try this recipe and if you enjoy it, please share it with your family and friends.
