Low-FODMAP Creamy Thyme Mashed Potatoes; Gluten-free, Vegan

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves 6

Prep time: 20 min

Cook time: 25 min


  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes (approximately 5-6 medium size potatoes)
  • 4 tablespoons vegan margarine, or butter (for non-vegan version) softened
  • 4-6 tablespoons canned coconut cream or low-FODMAP milk such as almond milk
    • I prefer coconut cream for a richer flavor
    • You could also use lactose-free milk for non-vegan version
    • This is NOT the same as ‘cream of coconut’
    • If you need a Kosher for Passover version, check out Trader Joe’s
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 2 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


  • Wash and dice potatoes into 1-2 inch chunks
    • Skin can be left on based on your preference  if you prefer a smoother mashed potato, peel them first.)
  • Boil the potatoes in salted water in a large pot until tender (approximately 20 minutes)
  • Drain and return pot to very low heat
  • Add margarine or butter, 4 tablespoons coconut cream or low-FODMAP milk and thyme or low-FODMAP Happy Spices Italian Seasoning
  • Mash with a potato masher until desired consistency
  • Add additional cream/milk as needed
  • Season to taste with additional salt and pepper to taste
  • Serve immediately, garnished with additional thyme and vegan margarine, if desired
