What's in plant-based mashed potatoes?
2 large red potatoes (can also use Russet or Yukon Gold)
2 cloves garlic
3/4 cup low-sodium veggie broth (can sub with almond milk if you prefer)
2 tsp nutritional yeast
Black pepper to taste
How to make plant-based mashed potatoes?
1. Scrub potatoes then cut in half and cover with 1 inch of water in large pot (keep the skins on for extra nutrients - or peel if your preference!)
2. Bring to a boil then simmer for 12-15 minutes, until soft enough to slide a butter knife through
3. While potatoes are cooking, peel garlic
4. When potatoes are done, let them cool for a few minutes then put them in a high-speed blender (a Vitamix or a Ninja - if you don't have either use a food processor or a Kitchen Aid on medium-high)* and add the garlic, veggie broth, and nutritional yeast. Pulse until desired texture. If you want super creamy, they may take a few rounds of pulsing and you can add more veggie broth as you go.
