Posted on 23 November 2012 by admin     

The traditional way to make creamy mashed potatoes is to add loads of butter and cream.

    Mashed potatoes should not look like baby food. How the hell is gravy supposed to even? stay on there? It’d just drip right off… No thank you, there’s nothing wrong with traditional mashed potatoes, with butter and milk.

    As someone who does dairy free and vegan cooking? all the time, world of no 😛

  4. TheVintageKitchen Says:

    I make mashed potatoes for my lactose intolerant family members all the time. Use dairy free margarine and any? soy milk that says it has a “milky taste”.

    Except that’s creamed potatoes not mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes should have? texture. So.

    Watched it. Love watching all the Chow vids. But if you make mashed potatoes with butter and cream in the? right proportions you should have no problem actually tasting the potatoes.
