Serves 6


4 pounds russet potatoes, scrubbed, peeled and chopped medium
3 cloves garlic, chopped fine
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped fine
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped fine
1 tablespoon  nutritional yeast (optional)
1 cup almond or soy milk
Freshly cracked black pepper


Bring a large pot of salted water with the potatoes in it to a boil and cook until tender. Drain and place in a large bowl. Add the fresh herbs, the nutritional yeast and the soy or almond milk and mash with a hand meld potato masher until the potatoes are a desired consistency. You can make them extra creamy by adding a little more milk and extra fluffy by using a food processor or hand held mixer. Season with salt and cracked black pepper to taste.
