Vegan Mashed Potatoes

Perfectly creamy and flavorful mashed potatoes without the dairy!

Ingredients

6
cloves garlic, roasted
3
pounds new potatoes
4
tablespoons olive oil
1
cup almond milk
1/8
teaspoon salt and pepper (or to taste)
1
tablespoon scallions, chopped (for garnish)

Directions

  • 1 To roast garlic, cut the top off a head of garlic and drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Wrap the head of garlic in foil. Roast in a 325°F oven for 30-35 minutes until cloves are very tender. Let cool and remove cloves from the garlic head for use in dish.
  • 2 Peel new potatoes and roughly cube potatoes. Add to a large pot of simmering salted water and cook until potatoes are tender, 15 minutes or so.
  • 3 Drain potatoes and return potatoes to hot pot over low heat. Add olive oil, almond milk, and roasted garlic and mash thoroughly. If you want your potatoes completely smooth, mix with an electric mixer and possibly add a bit more almond milk.
  • 4 Season mashed potatoes with salt and pepper and garnish with chopped scallions before serving.

Step By Step  

Be vegan and have your mashed potatoes too with this easy recipe.

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Here's one side dish on the Thanksgiving menu that'll make your vegan guests smile.

Obviously, if you happen to be vegetarian you have to pass on the centerpiece Thanksgiving dish – the turkey. But if you're vegan, you’ll also have to pass on my second favorite dish in most cases: Mashed potatoes!

This is a travesty and doesn’t have to be the case. Make a big serving of my Vegan Mashed Potatoes and do a side-by-side taste test with the traditional dairy version. I think you’ll find that you won’t miss the dairy. These are very awesome mashed potatoes.

If I’m in charge of Thanksgiving, I’ll frequently choose Russet potatoes because they're cheap and I need a bunch of them. But if you’re vegan you're probably saving a ton without any dairy or turkey – so splurge on the potatoes!

 

Vegan Mashed Potatoes

Go with new potatoes, which will make a creamier mashed product and have a bit better texture and flavor in my opinion. Just peel them and roughly cube them. If you want a heartier mash, you can leave the skins on.

Of course, just because these are vegan doesn’t mean we can’t add all kinds of stuff into the potatoes. I added in some olive oil (in place of butter) and almond milk instead of traditional milk along with a few cloves of roasted garlic.

Cook the potatoes in a very large pot with simmering, salted water. When the potatoes are cooked and tender (about 15 minutes) drain the potatoes and return them to the hot pot over low heat.

Then add in the olive oil, garlic, and almond milk and mash them like crazy. If you want the potatoes really smooth and creamy, mix them with an electric mixer until they are completely whipped. Feel free to add more almond milk, which will help them smooth out.

When the consistency is how you want it, season the mashed potatoes with salt and pepper and garnish the served potatoes with chopped scallions.

If you happen to be sharing the dinner table with a vegan this year, make this for them and they will forever love you!
