PREP TIME: 10 mins
COOK TIME: 15 mins
TOTAL TIME: 25 mins


3 pounds russet potatoes (peel 6-7 medium potatoes then cut them into 2-inch chunks)
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Fiji Joe Turmeric
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt + more to taste
1-1/2 – 2 cups organic milk
1/4 cup fresh flat Italian parsley (chopped)


🥘 Fill a large pot 2/3 of the way full with water. Set over high heat. Add potatoes. Bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 12 minutes. Drain and leave potatoes in the colander. Wipe the water out of the potato pan and return it to the burner.

♨️ Set the burner to medium heat. Add olive oil, Fiji Joe Turmeric, cumin, garlic powder, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 30 seconds. Reduce heat to low.

🥔 Add the potatoes back to the pan with the olive oil and all the spices. Add a chunk of butter and the milk, starting with 1 cup, and, using a potato masher, mash the potatoes in the pan. Continue mashing, adding more butter and milk as needed, until the potatoes are your desired consistency. Top with parsley and serve.
