  1. * 4 pounds Russet or Yukon Gold organic potatoes (about 5-6 large)
  2. * ¼ cup organic vegan butter (Earth Balance, Spectrum or other brands)
  3. * 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  4. * 1/3 -½ cup non-GMO soy creamer, unsweetened (Organic Valley, So Delicious or other brands); can use unsweetened almond milk
  5. * 1 teaspoon rock or Himalayan salt, to taste
  6. * ½ teaspoon fresh black pepper, to taste
  1. Scrub and clean potatoes, make sure and remove the eyes (they make your mashed potatoes bitter). Peel the potatoes if desired then cut into evenly sized quarters
  2. Place potatoes in a large pot of hot water. Boil for 25-35 minutes until done. You can test them with a fork
  3. Drain potatoes in a colander. Return to pan, add garlic and cook on very low heat for approximately 1 minute to remove moisture. Take care not to burn
  4. With a potatoes masher, mash the potatoes and garlic. Don’t worry, a few clumps right now is just fine
  5. Add vegan butter, salt and pepper to the potatoes and mash until butter melts
  6. Stir in soy creamer a little at a time until you have the right consistency. You may not need to add the full ½ cup of creamer
  7. Serve with choice of gravy such as Savory Mushroom and Herb Gravy
  8. Bon appétit!
  1. If you like you mashed potatoes without gravy; then add a few sprigs of fresh rosemary the last five minutes of cooking. Rosemary and potatoes are a lovely blend. In fact, it is my favorite combination.
  2. Also, make sure ALL your ingredients are organic; it will make a huge difference in taste. Besides, organic is much healthier.
