Prepare your potatoes. Wash them and peel if desired. I don’t peel mine. Chop them into pieces about an inch thick, then add them to a pot.
Peel your garlic cloves, but you don’t need to chop them. Leave them whole and add them to the pot.
Fill the pot with water so that the potatoes and garlic are completely covered, then place the pot on the stove and heat on high.
Once the water reaches a boil, lower the heat slightly and leave it boiling for about 10-15 minutes.
Once the potatoes are very soft and easily pierced with a fork, drain the water from the pot.
Mash the potatoes, ensuring to mash the garlic cloves as well. They will be soft enough to mash from being boiled.
Add all remaining ingredients and mash everything together until it is all evenly mixed. Before adding the coconut milk, make sure you shake the can so that it is not separated.
