Raise your hand if you love mashed potatoes!! I am such a huge fan of mashed potatoes and I’m excited to be sharing this Classic Dairy-Free Garlic Mashed Potatoes recipe with you today. It’s one of our family’s favourite recipes and I make it AT LEAST once every week to enjoy with grilled or roasted meats and a heaping side of veggies.
I’ve mentioned before that my husband has a dairy allergy, so most of the recipes I make have a dairy-free option. I’ve recently discovered a new ingredient that our family is absolutely LOVING: Oat Cream! It can be found at your local health food store in the refrigerated section, and it’s a lovely mild-tasting alternative to heavy cream that’s both dairy-free and vegan.
I’m not personally a fan of a lot of dairy-free soy or coconut products for recipes like these Classic Dairy-Free Garlic Mashed Potatoes because they often have a really strong flavour that overpowers the dish and makes it taste too soy-like or coconut-like. But oat cream has a very mild, almost dairy-like flavour that just disappears into these delicious potatoes and you’d NEVER know they were dairy-free!
If you can’t find oat cream at your local store, don’t worry. Before I discovered it I made these Classic Dairy-Free Garlic Mashed Potatoes all the time without the oat cream and they were still absolutely delicious and ultra creamy. So, feel free to leave out that ingredient and this dish will still turn out great!
