How to Make Bone Broth Mashed Potatoes
Peel the potatoes and cut into ½-inch slices.
Add to a large pot with water and put over high heat. Boil potatoes until they are soft and break apart when poked with a fork, about 10 to 15 minutes.
Add the potatoes to a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add in the butter and begin to mix to mash the potatoes with the butter.
Once the potatoes and butter are mashed together, I like to switch to the whisk attachment. Add in the bone broth, starting with 1/4 cup and begin mixing on low to combine. You can add in more bone broth if necessary to get the consistency you like.
Whisk on high to whip the potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with chopped chives on top.
Do I need a mixer for this recipe?
No, you can definitely do this without a mixer. I just like to use my mixer for ease. If you want to make mashed pantoates by hand, you’ll just need a potato masher and you can do it in the pot by adding the butter and bone broth there.
Do I need to peel potatoes?
No! I usually don’t peel potatoes when I make mashed potatoes, but I wanted to peel them here as I was going for a more classic recipe. But, you can leave skins on if you choose, just make sure to wash potatoes really well.
Can I make these ahead of time?
Yes, of course! Just store mashed potatoes in an airtight container in the fridge if you want to make a day ahead. Also, save the chives for right before serving. Serve with chopped chives on top.
Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
