Recipe Notes

  • If you're not concerned about this recipe being vegan, you can use chicken broth.
  • Russet potatoes could be used instead of Yukon gold.
  • For fluffy mashed potatoes, whip with an electric mixer.
  • You could stir the chopped fresh chives into the potatoes instead of just sprinkling for a garnish.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Boil the potatoes and garlic in salted water until very tender, about 20 minutes. Drain.
  2. Add the broth and olive oil. Mash. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with chopped chives, if desired.
