What You Need:
- Russet Potatoes (can also use golden potatoes)
- Chicken Broth (read labels to make sure you get one that is Whole30 compliant)
- Coconut Milk (or preferred non-dairy milk) We also love NutPods plain flavor
- Ghee (this is a lactose free, clarified butter)
- Salt & Pepper
- Fresh Herbs (optional)
The first step in this recipe is to cook the potatoes. The Instant Pot does all the work for you! I place the peeled and cubed russet potatoes in the pot with some chicken broth, fresh herbs (if using) and salt. The timer is set to 10 minutes.
When the timer goes off, you do a quick release of the steam and remove the lid (and fresh herbs if used). I then use a potato masher to start mashing the potatoes in the pot. This helps release some of the steam. Then add in the ghee, pepper, more salt to taste and a little coconut milk at a time until desired consistency is reached. You can use a potato masher or hand mixer to mix your potatoes right in the pot.
