Butternut Squash Mashed Potatoes (Gluten-Free Dairy-Free)

Last Updated on

Today, Day 18 of the KITCHENAID Mixer Giveaway and Authors’ Gluten-Free Recipes Event, I present a great Thanksgiving recipe from gluten free cookbook author, Kim Lutz, butternut squash mashed potatoes, “smashed” potatoes, as she calls them. This is a great recipe for those without a mixer, as it calls for the use of a potato masher, versus a mixer. In addition to being gluten-free, it is dairy-free. Looks yummy! Enjoy!

Kim is the co-author of Welcoming Kitchen: 200 Delicious Allergen and Gluten-free Vegan Recipes, along with Megan Hart, MS, RD. What drove Kim to create allergen- and gluten-free vegan recipes? Her son was diagnosed with multiple food allergies and she learned to cook delicious recipes in order to keep him safe and well-nourished. One of the best reasons!

You may connect with Kim on her blog Welcoming Kitchen, and on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.
