The Blender Girl Tess Masters Healthy Recipes“Instead of using tons of cream and butter, or even vegan butter spread like Earth Balance (which IS fantastic with potatoes by the way), I prefer using a really good quality cold pressed olive oil, which adds not only a delicious flavor, but also tons of health fats. To this I add a little bit of Massel vegetable broth for extra flavor. Then you can add in any spices, herbs and natural flavorings you fancy!”

The Recipe



  1. Place the chopped potatoes in a large saucepan and bring to the boil.
  2. Simmer for about 20 minutes until tender.
  3. Drain well, and return to the saucepan and stir-fry on a low heat to remove excess water (about 2-3 minutes).
  4. When potatoes are dry, gradually add the olive oil, broth, garlic and salt, tasting to make sure you get it juuuuust right for your taste preference. The quantities I listed were perfect for me. But, you might prefer more or less garlic, salt and/or olive oil.
  5. As you stir, the potatoes should get rich and creamy. I find I don’t even need to use a masher. However, you might prefer to use one, or you could use your stand mixer with the paddle attachment.
