Add in some garlic and chives and you’ve got yourself an easy meal prep idea, weeknight dinner, or an incredible holiday side dish!

Yields 6-8 servings

Ingredients:

5 yukon gold potatoes, peeled 

1 tablespoon salt

½ cup JOI almond or cashew plant base

1 tablespoon garlic powder

How It’s Made

  1. Add potatoes and salt to a large pot and cover with water. 
  2. Bring to a boil and continue to boil for 30 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
  3. Transfer them to a mixing bowl and add in the JOI. 
  4. Using a masher, combine the potatoes (and riced cauliflower if using, see note below) and JOI.
  5. Stir in ½ the chives as well as the garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Next time, try substituting a portion of the potatoes with an equal measure of riced cauliflower for a lighter version of this delicious side dish.
