These cheesy garlic mashed potatoes are the perfect easy to prepare vegan side dish. They are 100% dairy free, but still have a creamy texture and lots of delicious flavor thanks to being whipped with vegan mozzarella shreds and rich vegan butter.
Ready in 20 minutes| Serves 6-8 people
Hand mixer (optional)
5 large russet potatoes, diced, steamed, and peeled
1 cup unsweetened almond milk, or plant milk of choice
2 Tbsp vegan butter
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 heaping tsp dried parsley
1 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup vegan mozzarella shreds, or shredded vegan cheese of choice
Add steamed potatoes to a large mixing bowl with 1/2 cup almond milk and all of the vegan butter and mash with a potato masher until mostly smooth.
To get them extra fluffy, blend with a hand mixer for about a minute. Add all remaining ingredients and continue to blend for another minute, or stir with a mixing spoon until smooth and creamy.
Return to a large sauce pan and cook over medium low flame until evenly heated through, stirring occasionally. Serve right away. Pairs perfectly with our creamy mushroom gravy.
