Easy Vegan Classic Mashed Potatoes!

Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite holiday foods. They are SO good with some vegan gravy…. yummo! I tried to make this recipe not overloading in the indulgent department, enough to get all the flavor and trim some calories. If it’s not quite enough for you, you can always add more, but we were very content with these vegan mashed potatoes.

I feel like I only end up having mashed potatoes around the holidays. I know a lot of people eat them year-round and those are smart people, I should make them more. My kids LOVE them, I mean who can blame them.

When potatoes were created they knew they landed on a gold mine. You can do so much with a potato its incredible. Anyway, back to mashed potatoes. These are easy to make and so tasty.

Let’s talk about potato types. I usually like to use a mix of potatoes. Golden potatoes are one of my favorites, but throwing some russets in there never hurt anyone. Whichever potatoes you prefer for mashed potatoes will work. I always peel my potatoes, but it’s definetly a rough peeling a little potato always adds some flavor.

What do you need to make these tasty vegan mashed potatoes?

  • 3 pounds of potatoes
  • vegan butter
  • plant milk
  • vegan sour cream or cashew cream
  • vegan cream cheese
  • salt
  • pepper

How do you make them?

Start by peeling and cutting the potatoes into mostly even chunks. Add those chunks to a large pot and cover them with water and 2 tsp of salt. Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes or until fork-tender. Be careful not to over or undercook them. Once they are done, strain them in a colander.

While the potatoes are straining take the vegan butter, vegan sour cream and vegan cream cheese, and heat until the butter is melted. Then add your vegan milk, salt, garlic, and pepper, stir and set aside.

Take the potatoes and place them back into the pot. Take a hand mixer and mix the potatoes until they start smashing up then add the liquid mixture and whip the potatoes. Taste and see if it needs any additional flavoring. Serve with vegan gravy or more vegan butter.
