Servings 6side servings
8medium organic white potatoes
1/2cupfull fat coconut creamthe creamy solid that forms at the top of a full fat coconut cream can
1small crushed garlic clove or 1 tsp organic garlic powder
2tspHimalayan salt + a pinch more for when boiling potatoes
1/2tsporganic ground black pepper
Wash, peel, and roughly cube potatoes.
Add potatoes to a medium-large pot, fill pot with water until potatoes are covered. Place on stove top and bring water to a boil.
Once water is boiling, reduce heat to medium-high and let potatoes continue to boil for 20-23 minutes (depending on how big you cubed the potatoes this time may vary).
Fork potatoes to see if ready. If forked easily, they’re done. Pour out water (do not use strainer). Leave 1 tablespoon of the potato water behind in the pot.*
In the same pot, to the potatoes add salt, pepper, crush garlic or powder, and full fat coconut cream.**
Mash well until desired consistency is achieved. I mash for about 3 minutes but you can mash less if you prefer it a bit chunkier.
Taste test; add more salt/pepper based on preference. Serve hot and enjoy!
*Leaving a tablespoon of the potato water in the pot will help the mashed potato bind as this water is very starchy. Don’t leave too much more water though, or the mashed potato may turn a bit too tacky/gummy.**Depending on how big your potatoes are you may end up using the entire full fat cream portion from the can. To help separate the cream in the can, store the can in the fridge from the night before or at least for 4 hours. When opening, flip upside down, open lid, and pour out the separated coconut water (save for a smoothie). If you do not have time to chill the can, no worries! Open the can and try to scoop out the creamy portions. You might end up adding a bit of the watery parts but that’s ok; add a spoonful at a time as you mash the potato and stop once you’ve reached a desired mash consistency (about 1/2 cup for me).
