Mashed Potatoes

  • 3 pounds yukon gold potatoes
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 4-6 garlic cloves
  • 2 T nutritional yeast
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 c non dairy milk unsweetened plain


For the Potatoes:

  • Peel potatoes (optional) and dice them into 1 inch cubes.  
  • Place them in a large pot of room temp water.  Once all of the potatoes are peeled and cut place the pot over high heat and bring to a boil.  From start to finish it took me 20 minutes to get the potatoes onto the stove and cooked to be fork tender.  
  • While the potatoes are cooking, begin the gravy, directions below.  
  • Once the potatoes are fork tender drain them and return the empty pot to the stove over low heat.
  • Add the olive oil and garlic to the empty pot and lightly brown the garlic.  
  • Mix in nutritional yeast and salt and mix well.  It will become a thick paste.  
  • Slowly stream in the milk while stirring and mix until well incorporated.
  • Add potatoes on top and mash until desired consistency.
  • Serve with gravy, and enjoy!
