Quick, creamy, and deliciously fluffy vegan mashed potatoes without any dairy! Perfect for holidays or the perfect side for any dinner. Healthy, gluten-free, and low-fat.




  1. Peel and cube the potatoes then place them into a large pot or Dutch oven. Fill the pot with water until the potatoes are covered. Bring the water to a boil then reduce the heat to medium and cook the potatoes uncovered for 20-30 minutes or until they are fork-tender.
  2. Drain the potatoes using a colander then add them back to the pot.
  3. Mash the potatoes by hand using a potato masher or fork. Add the milk and vegan sour cream to the potatoes and mash to desired consistency. (I prefer mine on the lumpy side)
  4. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
  5. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley or chives and serve.


  • Leftovers will keep in a covered container for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator. To reheat them simply place them in a casserole dish, cover them with foil, and bake for 20 minutes at 350˚F. You can also warm the potatoes in a microwave or heat them in a large saucepan on the stovetop.
  • Adding freshly chopped herbs like rosemary, thyme, or parsley are great ways to enhance potatoes. They add an earthiness and aroma that’s pure heaven.
  • This recipe is assuming you’ve made the vegan sour cream beforehand.
