Cook Potatoes

  • 2.2 pound (1kg) potatoes Yukon Gold or Russet
  • 1 tsp salt

Mashed Potatoes

  • cup (150ml) oat milk or any other plant-based milk
  • 3 tbsp (45g) plant-based butter
  • ¼ nutmeg powder
  • salt & pepper to taste


Cook Potatoes

  • Peel and wash the potatoes thoroughly. Cut in equal big chunks.
  • Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Add the salt and cook for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are soft. They are ready when you can stick a knife into the middle of the potatoes without any noticeable resistance.
  • Drain the potatoes and leave them to sit for 5 minutes until the steam has evaporated.

Mashed Potatoes

  • Heat the butter and milk in a small pot or microwave (should be hot but not cooking).
  • Transfer the hot potatoes in the bowl of a stand mixer and mash for one minute using the flat beater.
  • Pour in the warm butter-milk-mixture and mash for another minute until you have fluffy mashed potatoes.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg powder and serve warm.



  • The more mil kand butter you add, the fluffier the mashed poatoes becomes. But don't turn it into an unhealthy fat bomb!
  • Don't have a stand mixer? Use a potato masher. Transfer the hot poatoes back to the pot in which you cooked them in. Mash them using the potato masher and slowly add the butter-milk-mixture until you have fluffy mashed potatoes.
