Course Side Dish
Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 15minutes
Total Time 25minutes
Potatoespeeled and diced
Buttermargerine, or non-dairy butter
Milkcream, or dairy replacement of choice
Salt and pepper
Place potatoes in a pot. Cover with cold water (starting with cold water will make sure your potatoes cook evenly all the way through and you don't get soggy outsides) and salt water well with a teaspoon or two of salt. Bring to a boil.
Boil until potatoes are tender enough that you can easily smash a piece of one against the side of your pot with a fork, about 8 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and drain potatoes.
Using a fork or potato masher, smash potatoes in the pot. Add butter or margarine and a splash of milk or cream. Mix and add salt and pepper. Taste and add more butter/milk/salt if needed.
