Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Garlic Mashed Potatoes
4 - 6 Servings
Ingredients
2 pounds organic red skin potatoes
Water to cover
1 bay leaf
3 large garlic cloves
¼ teaspoon mustard powder
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup vegan mayonnaise
¼ cup of the liquid potatoes were cooked in
Method
Wash/scrub potatoes and cut them into equal size.
Cover with cold water then add bay leaf and garlic cloves, bring to a boil.
Cook for 15 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
Drain potatoes and reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
Remove and discard the bay leaf.
Place the potatoes, mustard powder, sea salt, vegan mayonnaise in a mixing bowl with a paddle.
Mix just long enough for potatoes to reach a creamy consistency. Add cooking liquid ¼ cup at a time if needed.  
If you process too long potatoes will become sticky and gooey rather than light and fluffy.
You can also use a potato masher to cream the potatoes.  Just be careful not to over mix the potatoes, you want them to be light and fluffy.
