680-700gorganic potato such as Meris Piper, King Edwards, Yukon Gold or Russet. Peeled and cut into cubes
2tbsporganic butter or vegan alternative butter
1/3cuporganic cream cheese or vegan cream cheese
1/4organic full-fat milk, almond or soy milk
a handful of finely chopped chives and freshly ground black pepper for serving (optional)
In a saucepan place the potatoes in cold, salted water, just enough to cover them. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a fast simmer until they are tender. This should take roughly 10-15 minutes.
Once cooked drain the potatoes in a colander and return to the saucepan. Add the milk, cream cheese and butter. Then gently mash the potatoes until they are velvety and smooth. Season and serve with a sprinkling of chives.
