Classic Garlic Mashed Potatoes


Happy Friday!

I am so excited to share this recipe today! Mashed potatoes are such a classic and delicious recipe! As a vegan I think it is important to have versions of your favorite comfort foods made vegan! Anything potato does it for me. I was just telling Mitch today that if I could eat one junk food everyday without the consequences it would be anything potato. Fries, chips, mashed, baked, you name it! Let’s get into the recipe!

  1. To start off, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and wash your potatoes. Then cube your potatoes so they cook faster in the boiling water. You can also peel your potatoes, I just prefer to have the skin on!
  2. Place your potatoes in the boiling water and let them cook for 20 minutes or until fork tender.
  3. When they are for tender you can drain your potatoes and set them back in the pot.
  4. To your potatoes, add in your non-dairy milk of choice, vegan butter, vegan mayo, Nutritional Yeast, salt and pepper.
  5. Using a masher or a large fork mash your potatoes and ingredients till you have the consistency you desire. I like to keep my mashed potatoes slightly on the chunkier side, I think it adds more textures with the skin and garlic!
  6. Next, we are going to prep our final two ingredients. Garlic and chives! Take your cloves of garlic and you can either press them through a garlic press or smash them onto your cutting board (using the side of your knife) until they become a chunky paste. Add the garlic into your potatoes and mix well.
  7. Lastly, thinly chop your chives and add them into your potatoes, save a pinch for garnishing your potatoes. Mix your potatoes well and place them into a serving dish of your choice. garnish with the rest of the chopped chives and serve!

Servings: Makes 4 servings
