Mashed Potatoes

Thanksgiving is just a week away! I have started planning my menu and brainstorming “wow factor” sides. In my family, it’s all about the mashed potatoes! Creamy, garlicky, and golden. That’s how I like mine. This recipe for Dairy-Free Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes proves you can indulge in the decadent flavors of a creamy mashed potato recipe without the dairy.

Whether you are going dairy-free for an allergy, want to keep it healthier, or want to do right by mama cow, you’ll want to try this recipe and experience how delicious mashed potatoes can still be without the dairy.  I am ditching the dairy products for equally silky results with ingredients like Earth Balance butter, almond milk, and Tofutti sour cream. Not everyone adds sour cream to their potatoes, but I like the extra creaminess it adds. Sour cream is one of my must-haves on a baked potato, so it is only natural for me to add them to my mashed potatoes too.

I kick my potatoes up a notch with a head of roasted garlic. It’s an extra step, but for a garlic lover like me, it’s worth the additional minimal effort.  By the way, roasted garlic, in general, is a great “secret ingredient” to boost any side dish. It will give your casseroles, dressings, and sauces an extra “What is that incredible flavor?” factor!  I am a bit of a garlicaholic, but don’t take my word for it, try this recipe and taste for yourself!
