These crispy smashed potatoes with chive sour cream are so good that you can’t stop at just one.

I can’t take all the credit for the smashing technique as I learned it from Chef Jamie Oliver but I thought why not share it with my readers!

For my smashed potatoes recipe, I am collaborating with EarthFresh and I am using their organic Baby Yellow Potatoes. These potatoes make this recipe easy because there is no peeling involved! 

All they need is a good rinse, 10 minutes to boil and 30 minutes in the oven! It’s that easy and so delicious. The only ingredients you need for this smashed potatoes recipe are vegan sour cream, fresh chives, garlic cloves, garlic powder, olive oil and salt.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MASHED POTATOES AND SMASHED POTATOES?

Mashed potatoes are peeled, boiled and then mashed with milk. butter, and other seasoning ingredients. Whereas smashed potatoes are usually baked first or parboiled and then smashed with the skin on, then baked again until the skin is crispy.

WHAT CAN YOU USE TO REPLACE SOUR CREAM?

Feel free to replace it with greek yogurt, cottage cheese or crème fraiche.

IS IT OK TO EAT A POTATO THAT HAS SPROUTED?

Yes if you remove the sprouted area.

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF A POTATO HAS GONE BAD?

If it is heavily bruised, green, very sprouted or it has started to rot

Can you eat potatoes with a green tinge?

I would not recommend it as the green tinge means that it has had time to develop toxins, which are not healthy for the body.

FOR THIS RECIPE

You will need the following ingredients for my smashed potato recipe:

  • 3 lbs Baby Yellow Potatoes, washed with skin on
  • 6 garlic cloves, with skin on
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup vegan sour cream
  • ½ cup fresh dill, finely chopped

Required: Large Baking Sheet

HOW TO MAKE SMASHED POTATOES

Boil potatoes for 10 minutes over medium heat. Strain them in a colander. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

On a well oiled baking sheet with garlic cloves, lay your potatoes on it. Using a measuring cup, flatten the potatoes halfway. Season with salt, garlic powder and more olive oil.

Bake for 20 minutes on the middle rack. Meanwhile, finely chop your fresh chives and set aside.

Once potatoes have baked, remove them from the oven and using the same measuring cup, flatten the potatoes again for extra crispiness. Bake for another 10 minutes.

Plate your potatoes, garnish them with vegan sour cream and fresh chives. Serve hot and enjoy!
