  • 2 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • ½ cup full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives or green onion
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Place the diced potatoes in a pot with the broth. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce to a simmer, and steam for about 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender.
  • Drain, and reserve the remaining broth.
  • Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Roughly mash the potatoes using a potato masher.
  • Add the butter, Greek yogurt, and chives. If the potatoes seem dry, you can add the reserved vegetable broth a couple of tablespoons at a time.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.

  • If you're making the mashed potatoes in advance, reserve the cooking broth to add when reheating so they don't dry out.
