Vegan Mashed Potatoes

For the holiday table or a quick side, ultra-creamy mashed potatoes are a welcome addition to a meal. We use Yukon Gold potatoes and plant-based butter.

  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Add the potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a large pot, then fill with enough cool water to cover by 1 inch. Place the pot over medium-high heat with the lid on and bring to a boil.
  3. Step 3

    Reduce the heat to medium-low, remove the lid, and let simmer until the potatoes are fork tender, about 20 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Reserve 2 cups of the potato cooking water, then drain the potatoes.
  5. Step 5

    Transfer the potatoes back to the pot. Add the melted vegan butter, roasted garlic, remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, pepper, and herbs (if using).
  6. Step 6

    Mash thoroughly until the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  7. Step 7

    Add 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water at a time until the potatoes are fluffy and your desired consistency. Serve warm topped with additional vegan butter, if desired.
