This creamy herb mashed potatoes recipe gives a classic dish a spring twist with fresh herbs that compliment the potatoes and making this perfect for any Sunday spread.



1 kilo / 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
3 teaspoons sea salt
100 milliliters / 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon milk
50 grams / 1.75 ounces butter
2 tablespoons fresh herbs (mint, parsley, basil)
5 garlic cloves, peeled and minced


  1. Place the potatoes and 2 teaspoons sea salt into a pot on low to medium heat and pour enough water just to cover the potatoes.
  2. Cook until the potatoes are easily pierced with a knife (they shouldn’t be falling apart when pierced), approximately 20 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and drain.
  4. Add the milk and 30 grams / 2 tablespoons of the butter and mashed until fine.
  5. Meanwhile, place the remaining butter and minced garlic into a small saucepan on low heat, stirring until the butter is melted.
  6. Spoon the herb mixture over your potatoes evenly.
  7. Serve up.
  8. Enjoy!
