Ingredients

Mashed potatoes

  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes ( or russets. Peeled and quartered)
  • ½ cup unsweetened and plain coconut milk (Or unsweetened oat or cashew milk. If you don't have any milk at all, use the water you boiled the potatoes in. )
  • ¼ cup vegan butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Easy vegan gravy

Instructions

Mashed potatoes

  • Add peeled and quartered potatoes to a large pot and cover with water. Sprinkle in ½ tsp salt. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are fork tender (about 10-15 minutes). Drain the water and bring potatoes back to the pan
    2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
  • Gently warm up the unsweetened coconut milk on the stove or in a microwave (this allows the milk to mix with the potatoes better and makes them fluffy)
    ½ cup unsweetened and plain coconut milk
  • Add the vegan butter, warmed milk, 1 tsp salt to the potatoes and mash them however you'd like. For a more whipped mashed potatoes, use an electric hand mixer. Don't over mash or mix the potatoes as it will make them gummy.

Notes

If you don't have any milk on hand at all, just use vegan butter, and ½ cup of the water you boiled your potatoes in. Works like a charm. 
A trick to get your potatoes to be nice and creamy, is gently warm up the coconut milk before adding it into the potatoes.
I don't recommend almond or soy milk. They always leave an after taste in the mashed potatoes.
