Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Cauliflower

Ingredients

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Cauliflower
Ingredients for 9 servings

Serving size ~225g
  • 1 garlic bulb
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt
  • Mash
    • 1 1/2 lb russet potato, peeled and chopped
    • 2 lb Gold Yukon potato, chopped with SKIN ON
    • 12oz cauliflower florets
    • 6 tablespoons vegan butter
    • 2 tablespoons chives
    • 5oz 2% Greek yogurt
    • sea salt & pepper to taste
Steps

Set oven to 420F/216C.

Chop the head off a garlic bulb, then spray or drizzle olive oil on top of it with a pinch of sea salt.  Wrap the bulb in foil then place in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes.  After roasting, set aside to let it cool down.

In a pot of cold or room temperature water, add the potatoes and florets.  Add a pinch of sea salt, then bring the water to a boil and cook until the veggies are fork tender, around 25 minutes.

Drain the pot VERY WELL – try to remove as much liquid as possible – then place a towel on top of the pot to absorb and catch steam. This will help prevent a watery mash.  Mash up everything in the pot using a masher or fork (or immersion blender).  Add butter, chives, yogurt and roasted garlic and mix everything together using a spoon.  Season to taste with sea salt & pepper.
