You know what goes well with potatoes? Butter. You know what goes well with everything? Tahini.


Don’t get me wrong, butter is delicious in all shapes and forms, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the liquid gold that is tahini. I often use tahini as a butter substitute as it adds richness with a depth of flavor, like in my Low Carb, Creamy Cauliflower Rice Risotto Recipe.


By using Tahini in this mashed potatoes recipe, you get a savory flavor element while still being able to enjoy silky smooth potatoes sans the butter of heavy cream. This also makes them vegan and whole30 approved, but even hard core meat and potato eaters will fall in love with this luscious side dish.

To mash the potatoes, I’d highly recommend investing in a potato ricer. It produces the fluffiest potato texture. A regular potato masher, or even a fork, works great though! But, in the name of all that is potato, do NOT use a food processor or blender. It may seem like a quick option, but it’s just the quickest way to end up with a plate of gummy mush.

Top these potatoes with an extra drizzle of tahini, shredded parsley, and a few sesame seeds. They make a great side dish to dinner, but I won't judge if you just go ahead and eat the whole pot as a meal.
