Herbed Smashed Potatoes

Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes…A delicious carb. Arguably, the best carb. So today I have a recipe for these yummy smashed potatoes (can be oil free). These will be the perfect side dish to your yummy dinners, or great to have with a salad. They are full of amazing flavor from fresh herbs and have a cheesy feel because of the nutritional yeast. 


These could completely be made oil free and still taste amazing. I added a little but really it doesn’t make a difference. 

They are packed with garlic, thyme, rosemary, nutritional yeast and other yummy herbs.
