Ingredients:  
5 lbs. (2.3 kg) potatoes (Yukon gold, russet, red or white)
water (see methods)
1 – 1 1/2 cups (237 – 355 ml) unsweetened almond milk
1/3 cup (113 g) dairy free butter, margarine or (113 ml) extra virgin olive oil
mineral salt & fresh cracked pepper, to taste

Directions:
Directions:
Peel, or leave skins on, and quarter the potatoes (if using larger potatoes like russet, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes). If cooking with the skins, scrub potatoes well before cutting.
Place potatoes at the bottom of the Instant Pot, add 1 1/2 (355 ml) cups water and generous pinch of salt.
Attach lid, and make sure vent is in the SEALED position. Push the PRESSURE COOKER button, and manually set the time for 10 minutes (Instant Pot will come to pressure before actually cooking which may take 10 minutes).
When done, let the steam vent on it’s own, or carefully move the valve to open if you’re in a hurry.
Mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Add milk, oil/butter, salt and pepper, and stir well until fluffy and creamy, a few lumps is ok. Taste for flavor, adding more salt & pepper to taste.
Keep warm in the instant pot with this Instant Pot glass lid. Add a tad more milk and stir well to bring back creaminess before serving if needed.

Stovetop:

In a large pot, add potatoes and fill pot with enough water to cover potatoes, there should be about 1 inch of water overtop.
Bring to a boil, cover askew, reduce heat to low, and cook over a gentle boil for 15 – 20 minutes. Potatoes are done when fork tender.
Remove from heat, carefully drain water.
Mash with potato masher, add oil/butter and 1 cup milk, salt & pepper, stir to combine. Add more milk, a little at a time, as needed to achieve desired consistency (you may find you use up to 2 cups). Taste for flavor, adding more salt & pepper to taste.
