VEGAN MASHED POTATOES – Protecting you from all the awkward and irrelevant conversations at even the most dreaded get-togethers.
LET’S DO THIS!
How Do You Make Vegan Mashed Potatoes
First, peel the potatoes (or not if you prefer to leave the skins on…totally acceptable), and roughly chop into small chunks. And, feel free to use the potato of your choice. I prefer Russet or Yukon Gold Potatoes.
Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-high, and gently boil until the potatoes are tender enough to pierce with a fork. Usually about 12-20 minutes.
You can also use your Instant Pot and steam them. It takes just 13 minutes and you’ve got perfectly steamed potatoes.
When the potatoes have finished cooking, drain the water and add them to the bowl of your KitchenAid Stand Mixer or you can use a handheld mixer. Lightly mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Place whisking attachment onto the mixer, add the cashew sour cream, almond milk or soy milk, and remaining ingredients.
Whisk until your vegan mashed potatoes reach your desired consistency. If you want lumpier potatoes just whip them for a couple of minutes. For creamier, smoother potatoes whip them longer.
That’s it. Delicious Vegan Mashed Potatoes!
How To Make Vegan Mashed Potatoes Creamy
The secret behind these creamy little devils is my Cashew Sour Cream and KitchenAid Stand Mixer. The Cashew Sour Cream adds the tanginess and creaminess you love in mashed potatoes. And, the whisking attachment for the KitchenAid whips the potatoes, unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
Next to my Vitamix, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer is one of those “must haves” I must have. I shudder to think what my kitchen would be without either of them.
If you don’t have a KitchenAid Stand Mixer or handheld mixer you’ll have to kick it old school with a potato masher.
Big deal! Your grandmother did it that way and she never complained. And, I bet her potatoes were pretty darn good!
