Can you have mashed potatoes on Whole30?
Yes! Yes! Yaaaassss! Keep your Whole 30 Mashed Potatoes Recipe dairy free and you are compliant. Many recipes use coconut and/or almond milk as a dairy substitute. To this I say . . . Yuck! Get your alt-milks outta my taters 😆
There is a much better substitute, in my humble opinion. My dairy free mashed potato recipes use chicken broth. Not only does it give the potatoes a light fluffy texture, but, it adds loads of flavor too! For a vegan option you can use vegetable broth. Just be aware that many veg broths are slightly orange or red depending on the veggies they are made with. The color of the broth will affect the color of the potatoes.
What can I put in my mashed potatoes?
Obviously, spinach is at the top of my list here. Just trust me. My family/taste-testers were skeptical but even my harshest critic (The Mom) gave spinach a green light. In fact, she said we should put spinach in out mashed potatoes from now on. Let me just tell you that this woman takes her mashed potatoes very seriously.
I’ve been adding spinach to a ton of recipes ever since my Earthbound Farm Organic Experience. You can read all about it and check out this recipe for Spinach Artichoke Smothered Chicken.
If you want to add more flavor feel free to mix in your favorite potato seasonings, garlic, fresh herbs or any other veggie you happen upon.
This Whole 30 Mashed Potato Recipe can be made even creamier if you mix in ghee before serving.
