To begin making Lazy Mashed Potatoes I washed 6 large potatoes.  I usually use yellow, red or a combination of both.

I pierced them with a fork and then placed them on paper towel in the microwave. I cooked them for 12 minutes on high power.

While the potatoes were cooking in the microwave I put a medium saucepan on the stove and turned the burner to med/low heat.

Then I added 1/4 cup of margarine (you can use butter) and some almond milk since I have to avoid dairy.

Once the potatoes were cooked I placed them in the sauce pan with the almond milk and margarine.  I left the skins on.

Then I used a potato masher to combine them with the liquid.

If needed, I added some more almond milk a bit at a time to get my desired consistency.
