  • 1 whole head garlic
  • 6 large russet potatoes peeled and diced
  • 2 tbsp vegan buttery spread such as Earth Balance, or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 –1/2 cup unsweetened rice milk or other nondairy milk
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • scallion thinly sliced or chives, minced, for garnish


  • Remove some of the papery outer layers from the garlic but keep the cloves intact. Place on a baking sheet and bake in a 350°F oven or 375°F toaster oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the cloves are soft.
  • When cool enough to handle, gently separate the cloves from the head of garlic and squeeze the soft pulp out of each clove into a small bowl and discard the outer skin.
  • In the meantime, cover the diced potatoes with plenty of water in a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer steadily but gently, covered, until the potato dice are very tender, about 20 to 25 minutes, then drain.
  • In a large, shallow bowl, combine the cooked potato dice with the Earth Balance or olive oil and stir until melted. Add 1/4 cup of rice milk and the reserved garlic pulp and mash the potatoes until smooth and fluffy. If needed, add up to an additional 1/4 cup of rice milk to loosen the consistency.
  • Season with salt and pepper, then transfer to a serving container. Sprinkle some scallion or chives over the top and serve at once, or keep warm until needed.


Variation: Substitute a large sweet potatoes for two of the white potatoes.
