Light and Fluffy Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoesBy Cybele Pascal

The type of potatoes makes a big difference in the consistency. I prefer Russet for best results.

Makes 6 servings
Free of: Gluten and all top allergens


  • 3 lbs (1.5 kg) Russet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) plain dairy-free milk alternative (such as rice)
  • 6 tbsp dairy-free, soy-free margarine
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Peel potatoes and cut into 1 1/2 -inch cubes. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add potatoes and cook in a slow boil 15-20 minutes, until fork tender. Drain
  2. Place potatoes in a mixing bowl. Mash a little. Add milk alternative, margarine and salt. Use a potato masher or electric mixer to combine. If using a mixer, stop when soft and still fluffy; don’t over mix.
