Do you love potatoes as much as I do? Sometimes you need something a bit different, and these Goat Cheese Whipped Potatoes definitely fit the bill. They are light and fluffy, with a nice added tang from the goat cheese. I  have to admit that these potatoes were not my idea. They came with my dinner at Satay’s Restaurant in Coeur D’Alen, Idaho and I really, really enjoyed them!

Now I need warn some of you, these are not lactose free!! I sometimes forget that mashed potatoes in restaurants are made with heavy cream. Not a good thing for someone that is lactose-intolerant. 🙁

When I made them at home with cashewmilk instead of heavy cream, they didn’t seem to bother me…which makes me very happy!

These Goat Cheese Whipped Potatoes are just as easy to make as regular Mashed Potatoes.

Serve in a bowl, or squeeze through a pastry bag with a decorative tip if you’re feeling fancy. 😉 Garnish with a sprig of rosemary if desired.

I swirled them with a large spoon on the plate next to the Huckleberry Glazed Salmon, and smoothed out the sides to create a mountain…..

It was a Northwest themed meal, so a mountain seemed appropriate. 😉 This is what the fancy restaurant version looked like…..

I need to remember to buy some new decorative tips before I make these again, since my garbage disposal keeps eating them!!

A note about goat cheese or chèvre …there are different types. Traditionally, goat cheese is made with goat milk…duh. However, goat cheese sold in the U.S. is made with cow’s milk and each farm has their own version.

The goat cheese that I bought in Idaho is drier and crumbled, and comes in a plastic container {like feta cheese}. The goat cheese that I bought in Iowa, comes in a sealed packaged and has the consistency of cream cheese…..

They both worked just fine, although the creamier goat cheese was a bit milder.

No matter what goat cheese you find, these potatoes make a delicious side dish.

  1. Lisa, I love mashed potatoes, and this sounds like a great new way (to me, anyway!!) to enjoy them! By the way, I like your presentation better than the restaurant’s, and your salmon is beautiful. Thank you for sharing these with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinned both of ’em! 🙂

  2. Oh my yum!! What a wonderful combo! Love goat cheese, and yet I’ve never had it in mashed potatoes! That must be fixed ASAP. Thanks so much for linking up to Saturday Night Fever. I hope you have a great weekend coming up. XO
