Yum! Mashed potatoes! Who doesn't love a creamy mound of buttery mashed potatoes? They are the ultimate comfort food. But if you are allergic to milk, the butter and cream are off limits. Sometimes the milk and margarine alternatives contain other allergens like soy.
Problem: You need to make mashed potatoes without milk or soy.
Solution: You can still make creamy mashed potatoes by using substitutions that are milk-free and soy-free.
Replace milk with any of the following:
- Cooking water from the potatoes – reserve it in a heatproof container such as a glass measureing cup when you drain the potatoes
- Veggie or chicken stock
- Unsweetened milk alternative
Replace butter with:
- Flavorful oil such as olive, corn or grapeseed
- Soy-free, milk-free margarine
- Soy-free solid fat or shortening (usually palm or coconut oil based)
