2 large heads garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/2 cup soy milk (check the label to be sure it doesn’t contain milk-based
ingredients), rice milk, oat milk, almond milk, or vegetable or chicken
4 pounds potatoes, peeled or unpeeled (as desired) and quartered
Freshly ground black pepper
Salt to taste (optional)
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice about 1/4-inch off the top of the garlic
heads, throw the tops away, and place heads on a piece of foil. Drizzle olive
oil over the top of the garlic heads and wrap them well in the foil. Bake until
tender and golden, (about 35-45 minutes). Remove from oven and let stand until
cool enough to handle. Peel the skin away from the garlic cloves.
- Add the garlic cloves to a small nonstick saucepan along with the soy milk
or broth. Start simmering the mixture over medium heat until soy milk or broth
is hot. Reduce heat to simmer, cover the pan, and continue to simmer for a few
more minutes. Turn the heat off and lift out the garlic cloves with a slotted
spoon, place in custard cup, and set aside. Leave the saucepan with soy milk or
broth on the stove until needed.
- Place quartered potatoes in a large stockpot, cover with cold salted water,
and bring to a boil. Cook until very tender, about 12 minutes. Drain potato
pieces in a colander.
- Add hot, steaming, and drained potato pieces directly to a large mixing
bowl and beat on low while you slowly pour in the soy milk or broth. Season
with salt and pepper if desired and gently stir in the roasted garlic
