Garlic Thyme Mashed Potatoes

Soft, creamy, and non dairy – these mashed potatoes get an extra zing with garlic infused olive oil and fresh thyme. A perfect side dish on any day of the week, this is a happy favorite.



  • 6 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, and cut into 1″ chunks
  • 1 tsp + 14 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 18 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • Water


Place potatoes in a pot and add enough water to cover the potatoes. Add the salt, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, and cook covered, until the potatoes are tender (you can test by trying to pierce with a fork), about 7-10 minutes.

Drain, reserving the liquid. Mash the potatoes or use an immersion blender, adding the reserved water as needed to reach desired creamy consistency. Transfer to a bowl.

Heat oil in the pot, add the garlic and sauté until golden, about 2 minutes. Mix the garlic oil, 14 tsp salt, pepper, and thyme with the potatoes and serve.
