How it’s Done

To make the Ultimate Vegan Smashed Potatoes : Wash and cut potatoes into large chunks, about the same size.  Place the potato chunks in a large pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Boil until potatoes are tender, 7-10 minutes.  Meanwhile, wash and chop parsley.

Check potatoes with a knife-they should easily slide off when done cooking.  Drain the potatoes. Enjoy the steam facial.

Immediately place potatoes back in the hot pot. Using a potato masher, begin mashing the potatoes.  Let them steam a bit more to get rid of some of the liquid.  The drier they get now, the creamier and fluffier they will be later.  Add the onion powder, granulated garlic, black pepper, and salt.  Mash for 30 seconds, until the garlic becomes aromatic.  Add the almond milk, parsley, and nutritional yeast.  Keep mashing until well-combined and creamy.   Taste to adjust seasoning.

Serve warm.

Serve with Hearty Belgian Mushroom Stew, Port Mushroom Gravy, or just dive into a bowl when you need some love.

Chef Katie’s Tips:

Thin-Skinned Potato Love: Using thin-skinned Yukon Gold and Red Potatoes means you don’t have to peel them.  They also add a nice, creamy texture to the dish.

Extra Potatoes:  There are plenty of ways to use up extra mashed potatoes.  Add them to soups or stews for healthy, plant-based creamy texture.  Use them to top Vegan Shepherds Pie.  Combine them with steamed kale for Irish Kale Colcannon.
