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


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
