For smashed potatoes
- 6-7 cups fingerling potatoes (you can also use small white or red baby potatoes)
- 1 tbsp. + 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp fresh thyme or rosemary + extra sprigs for garnish
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
For roasted garlic cashew butter
- 1/3 cup cashew butter made with the NutraMilk
- 1 garlic bulb, roasted with 1 tsp olive oil + pinch sea salt
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
For cashew butter
- 2 cups (300g) cashews
- 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)
- To roast the garlic bulb, preheat oven to 425°F. Trim about a 1/4”off the top of the bulb to expose the cloves. Drizzle with a teaspoon of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until roasted, golden brown, and soft on the inside.
- Making cashew butter
- Place cashews and salt in the NutraMilk container.
- Press Butter cycle, set for 5-6 minutes.
- Press Start.
- Open the container lid.
- If necessary, set for an additional 1-2 minutes for a creamier butter.
- Leave 1/3 cup in the NutraMilk for recipe and store the rest for later use.
- Add the roasted cloves of garlic, water, coconut oil, and sea salt to the NutraMilk and mix until very smooth and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight to firm up a little bit more like a whipped butter.
- Toss whole potatoes in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, fresh thyme, sea salt, and ground black pepper. Bake in an oven preheated to 450°F for 20 minutes.
- Smash the whole potatoes with a fork or potato masher to break open the skin. Drizzle with another 2 teaspoons of olive oil and place whole thyme sprigs on top so they can crisp up as well. Bake again for another 10 to 12 minutes until crispy.
- Serve immediately with a dollop roasted garlic cashew butter on each potato.
