okay, I may be exaggerating, but these potatoes turned out perfect & they are so easy to make...plus, they are pretty much free of everything, except potatoes, palm shortening & salt! I know they aren't the healthiest with all that palm shortening, but if you're not eating them every day, you should be fine :) & they really do taste like the "regular" dairy-filled mashed potatoes they're being compared to! Enjoy!
Mashed Potatoes (dairy-free, gluten-free)
5-7 medium sized potatoes
1/2 cup palm shortening (maybe a little more, depending on creaminess)*
sea salt, to taste
1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Wash potatoes (you can skin them if you'd like, I don't). Chop into small cubes & place in water, when boiling.
2. Boil for about 20-minutes, until they are soft & ready to be mashed.
3. Place cooked potatoes, palm shortening & sea salt in bowl & blend until they are mashed. Taste & add more shortening or salt, if needed.
*I'm not sure on the exact measurements of the palm shortening, I put a big scoop in there & then added a couple more little scoops just in case, but once they're mashed, taste it & add more if they don't taste like the perfect mashed potatoes your desiring ;)
