Preparation

1

Peel the potatoes: Peel the potatoes using a vegetable peeler. 

2

Cut the potatoes: Cut the potatoes in 2 to 3 inches dices. If you want the potatoes to be the smoothest possible, you can take the time to remove the little knots from the potatoes with a small spoon.

3

Cook the potatoes: Place potatoes in a large pot (5 liters, 10 liters) and add enough cold water to cover potatoes. Bring to a boil and cook partially covered until easily pierced with a knife. Boil 20-25 minutes depending on the size of your potatoes.

4

Drain the potatoes: Drain well and transfer to the bowl of a stand mixer or transfer back to the pot and use an electric mixer.

5

Mash the potatoes:  Ensure the vegan butter (1/2 cup, 1 cup) is room temperature. In a small bowl place the coconut milk (1/2 cup,  1 cup) and hot water (2/3 cup,  1 1/3 cup).Combine. Start whipping the potatoes on low speed 30 seconds then increase to medium and slowly drizzle in coconut milk mixture. With mixer on, add softened vegan butter (1/2 cup, 1 cup) 1 Tbsp at a time, waiting a few seconds between each addition. The potatoes should be whipped and fluffy. Add the salt (1 1/4 tsp, 2 1/2 tsp) and pepper (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp). Taste and adjust salt & pepper.

To keep mashed potatoes warm until serving: cover potatoes and place into a warm oven or transfer to a slow cooker on the low setting to keep potatoes warm until ready to serve.

bon appétit!
