Vegan Mashed Potatoes - So Delish!

Vegan Mashed Potatoes finished

 

Tasting mashed potatoes with lots of butter and a splash of green onions - that's what I wanted! But how  was I doing to do it without any normal butter and no regular milk? My husband wanted "normal"mashed potatoes but I didn't have time to make both dishes so I came up with this delicious vegan recipe. 

 

I was in a big hurry that night and had to think fast about how I could come up with a recipe that would accommodate both my husband who loves "normal" food and our daughter who is terribly allergic to any form of dairy. What was I going to do - I had to think fast!! My husband is very picky so I had to think of something that would taste very similar to "normal" mashed potatoes - nothing weird. hehe

 

So, I diced and boiled about 5 or 6 medium potatoes until they were tender. If you don't want to wait on the potatoes boiling, you can use these dehydrated potato dices as well.  Once they were finished, I started mashing. Now was the time I had to  let go and let God teach me what to do. Have you ever had to "cook in the Spirit?" Yeah, I know. It sounds weird - but it really works. That's what I have to do most of the time I cook since there isn't usually a recipe that works for our daughter. Most recipes have at least one ingredient that I have to eliminate. So I'm constantly tweaking recipes - yeah - that's no fun. 

 

While the potatoes are still hot, drop in 4 or 5 tablespoons of vegan butter and let it melt.

Begin stirring while adding your Cashew Milk. If you don't have Cashew Milk, Coconut Milk works too - it's just not as creamy. You will want to add enough milk to make the potatoes the texture that you prefers. We like them thick and chunky but you might like them a little thinner. If so, just add a little more Cashew Milk. You can use Coconut Milk but the potatoes won't be as creamy. 

For the added pizzazz, I throw in a couple of cloves of minced garlic and about a handful of green onions. Oh - and you don't want to forget a little salt and black pepper. I usually use Himalayan salt but regular sea salt tastes great too. That adds the finishing touch to the delicious comfort food! Enjoy!!

I also buy my spices and dairy-free milk from Thrive Market and the Bulk Herb Store. Both of these online stores have great prices.

How do you like your mashed potatoes?


Do you like extra spice or just lots of butter?


What about using coconut oil instead of vegan butter?
