Potatoes Mashed in Coconut Milk

We love mashed potatoes. We also had some leftover coconut milk from curry roasted tofu and vegetables, and these two facts put together resulted in coconut mashed potatoes. Google told me that in Hawaii, sweet potatoes are often mashed in coconut milk. Here, the coconut flavor hides in the background, but still gives a nice new accent to regular mashed potatoes.


Here’s what we had:

  • 8-9 medium potatoes
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 dl coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable margarine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of white pepper

The process was as usual; peeled and sliced the potatoes and the carrot, cooked until soft, mashed with a potato masher, added coconut milk, margarine, and seasonings, and beat with a whisk until fluffy.
