Perfect Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes


Serves/ Yield: 6-8

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook/ Assembly Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes



  • 2 1/2 lbs. Potatoes, peeled & cut into 1” cubes (Russet or Yukon Gold)
  • 6 T. Ghee, divided
  • 2 T. chopped fresh herbs (to taste – rosemary or sage are excellent choices)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 c. coconut milk, full fat
  • Salt & White Pepper, to taste
  • 3 scallions, green parts thinly sliced (optional)


Place the cubed potatoes in a large deep pot and fill with water to cover the potatoes by 1½ inches. Set to high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 12-15 minutes.  The potatoes are ready when they can easily be pierced with a fork. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Cover with a lid and set aside.

In a small sauté pan heat the ghee over medium heat. Once melted add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds.  Remove the pan from the heat and add the herbs. Gently mix and then pour the ghee mixture over the potatoes.

Add the coconut milk to the potatoes and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Adjust flavor with salt and pepper as desired.

Garnish with scallions and serve.


Options and Notes: Can be made in advance and reheated. Add additional coconut milk if it is too thick.
