    Mashed potatoes without milk/cream?

    My stupid roommate is allergic to dairy (not just lactose intolerant) so I'm looking for a good mashed potatoes recipe that doesn't use milk or cream. He can eat butter, but he can't touch milk or cream. I did googling and I see suggestions ranging from soy milk to water to chicken stock. Is there a good milk free way to do it or should I just stick with baked or roasted potatoes?

    One of my favorites is to add some nice olive oil, a bit of lemon juice, and some sage, thin with a touch of stock/broth if necessary (but that just means you didn't use enough oil ). I leave it a little lumpy, more like lightly smashed potatoes. Great with fish or chicken.

    Stefan pretty much covered a couple good options.

    Olive oil (plus some fresh herbs) is great, but leave the potatoes a more smashed then mashed. And a prep with stock works well with a finer mash (and can supplement with some parmigano or other grated hard cheese).

    I never put milk or cream in mine. Just butter and salt and pepper and it tastes great. Why make it more complicated than you need to?

    If the roommate is allergic to dairy butter won't do.
    Olive oil works, but really nothing is as good as butter + cream.

    There are those who feel that mashed potatoes without milk or cream aren't worth any bother at all. Use the potatoes for something else. ;-)

    Actually, butter is fine, but milk and and most cheeses are not. I guess it's some bacteria that is present in milk that he is allergic too but butter isn't an issue.

    Oops, should've read your OP more carefully. Lucky for him that he can have butter.

    I have not tried it with potatoes but I have had some success in replacing dairy with soy yogurt.

    I s'pose sour cream or cream cheese won't work for him, as well?
