Fluffy Mashed Potatoes

BY : PUBLISHED : December 14th, 2013 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

Comfort food at it’s finest. Simple way to carb up guilt-free and on a budget! I love making this and kicking it up a notch by adding nutritional yeast, folding in non-dairy sour cream and vegan bacon bites for a “loaded” style. You can really take this recipe and put your own spin on it.
