Smashed Potatoes Plant-Based Recipe

What You'll Need


3 lbs potatoes, mix of red and Yukon gold

½ bunch parsley

¼ cup nutritional yeast

½ tsp black pepper

2 cups plain almond milk

½ Tbsp onion powder

1 tsp granulated garlic


How to Make It


1 Wash and cut potatoes into large chunks, about the same size. Place the potato chunks in a large or, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Boil until potatoes are tender, 7-10 minutes. Meanwhile, wash and chop parsley.

2 Check potatoes with a knife – they should easily slide off when done cooking. Drain potatoes.

3 Place potatoes back in the hot pot. Add the remaining ingredients. Use a potato masher to mash together. Taste to adjust seasoning.

Cooking Tips

Using thin-skinned Yukon Gold and Red Potatoes means you don’t have to peel them. They also add a nice, creamy texture to the dish.
