Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes
These vegan dairy free olive oil mashed potatoes rich, creamy. easy, and delicious.
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 8 to 10
- 2 lb (1kg) unpeeled and diced red-skinned potatoes
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more to taste
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic, plus more to taste
- 1/2 cup vegetable broth, plus more to taste
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus more to taste
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives, plus more to taste
- 1 tablespoon Celtic sea salt, plus more to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
Place the chopped potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-high, and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes until tender. Drain well.
Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to the saucepan, and over medium heat, sauté the garlic for 2 to 3 minutes until just starting to brown. Add the drained potatoes and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes until the excess water has been absorbed.
Transfer the potatoes and garlic into the bowl of your stand mixer, and with the paddle attachment mix on high gradually add the olive oil and broth until mixed well, and you've reached your desired consistency. Season with the salt and pepper. Tweak olive oil, broth, salt and pepper to taste. (You could also mash the potatoes by hand with a potato masher or ricer.)
Stir through the parsley and chives, and add more to taste.

LOL! OMG! You ate the potatoes behind my back! You are just FULL of surprises behind my back! HA HA HA! Love you xx
Love these potatoes! The olive oil gives the creamy texture without being too heavy. The fresh garlic and herbs add a nice kick and insure there will be no leftovers!!! YUMMY!!!
Yes, these are surprisingly creamy aren’t they? You really don’t need cream and butter to get a delicious rich flavour. Glad you enjoyed them my friend. xx
The bottom of the bowl appeared way too soon. It was very popular. Next time I’m making twice the amount.
I KNOW the feeling! These are SOOO good. So glad you enjoyed them 🙂
HA HA HA! You are HILARIOUS! Yes, Scott’s comment is very funny. Glad you enjoyed these potatoes. SOOOOOO good I just can’t get enough of them!
do you have the nutritional info?
Sorry Tina, I don’t do nutritional profiles for my recipes. I may in the future. Until then, you can plug the recipes into third-party sites like cronometer.
I made this recipe but with coconut oil and coconut milk and it came out so yummyy… Thank you for sharing your recipes.
