The ultimate BEST vegan mashed potatoes! All you need is a handful of ingredients and around 30 minutes for the perfect gluten-free, dairy-free side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and plant-based roast dinners!

Ingredients: – 4 pounds russet potatoes washed and cut into 1-inch pieces – 5 garlic cloves – 1 cup unflavored, unsweetened plant-based milk – ¼ cup vegan butter – 1 ½ teaspoon salt – ½ teaspoon pepper

Instructions – In a large pot over medium-high heat, add 1-inch potatoes and whole garlic cloves, and completely submerge them in water.  – Bring to a boil and cook for 25 minutes or until potatoes are completely tender.

Instructions – When potatoes are completely tender, drain out the water with a colander. Place the potatoes and garlic back into the pot, add plant-based milk, vegan butter, salt, and pepper. – Mash potatoes and garlic with a potato masher or a large and sturdy fork until you reach your desired consistency.

Quick Tip for making LOTS of mashed potatoes:  It’s best to transfer your chopped potatoes to the pan of water (or a water-filled bowl) immediately. Otherwise, they’ll oxidize and discolor.
