Dairy-Free Mashed Potatoes
  1. Bring 4 quarts water to a boil and add salt
  2. While water is heating peel and cut potatoes into uniform pieces
  3. Once boiling, add potatoes and garlic to pot
  4. Cook until potatoes are tender, 15-20 minutes (check with fork at 12 minutes to estimate further cooking needed)
  5. Set up ricer or food mill over pot used to cook, or metal or glass bowl. Press potatoes and garlic through ricer or food mill (alternately, use a hand mixer, but be careful not to overbeat), adding olive oil and chicken stock/vegetable broth as needed to produce creamy soft consistency
