Decadent Mashed Potatoes

Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite food in the universe is comforting classic mashed potatoes.  Growing up my Mom always made them pefectly because she made them with lots of love, butter and cream.  Though she never followed a recipe I would compare hers with those crafted by Joel Robuchon, equal parts potato, butter and cream.  When you are craving the ultimate in comfort, give these a go.  Your belly, heart and soul will thank you.

Decadent Mashed Potatoes
4 medium Potatoes (red, yellow or russet)
4 Tablespoons Earth Balance
4 Tablespoons Unsweetened Coconut Milk (from carton)
Sea Salt to taste
Finely Ground Black Pepper (optional)

Boil potatoes whole until fork tender.  Remove potatoes, discard water and allow potatoes to cool enough to handle. Peel skins and place potatoes back in pan.  Turn burner on medium heat and add butter allowing it to just melt.  Mash potatoes in pan with heavy duty whisk or potato masher.  Slowly drizzle in coconut milk and turn off heat.  Continue mashing until creamy consistency is reached.  Add more coconut milk if needed.  Salt to taste and serve immediately.  Add finely ground black pepper if desired.  Deliciously simple and delightfully decadent!
