Tasty Turmeric Mashed Potatoes Recipe: Brighten Up the Thanksgiving Table With This Creamy Mashed Potato Recipe

Talk about festive mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving! This easy, creamy turmeric mashed potato recipe is a beautiful yellow and will make your taste buds and eyes happy. It's not only delicious, but adds some fall color to the table. Use coconut milk and vegan butter for a dairy-free version. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 14 to 17 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons butter or vegan butter 
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

Here's how to make it:

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water until tender, about 10 to 12 minutes. 
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, combine the cream, thyme, if using, butter, turmeric and garlic in a saucepan. Whisk and bring to a simmer. Cook about 4 to 5 minutes. 
  3. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Pour in the cream (you can strain it through a mesh strainer, if desired). 
  4. Mash with a potato masher or whip the potatoes with an electric mixer. (Do not overmix or they will get gummy.) Season with salt and pepper.
