Top Review by Sydney Mike

I'll admit that, until recently, when confronted with a recipe like this, I'd be tempted to do a lot of substituting with 'regular' ol' ingredients, but not so much anymore since both my son & DIL are vegetarians! Because of that I'm much more willing to make vegetarian & vegan recipes as given, as I did with this one! These mashed potatoes definitely have a quality texture & flavor, for sure! I was a little unsure about using garlic AND nutmeg but it certainly worked wonders here! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean and dice red skin potatoes into 2" pieces (do not peel).
  2. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with 2" of cold water. Add salt to water, allow to come to a boil over high heat. Once at full boil, reduce heat to low. Continue to cook for approximately 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Drain potatoes for at least 5 minutes, making sure they are dry. While potatoes are draining, melt margarine over low heat. Add garlic, allowing to heat without browning.
  4. Once drained, place potatoes back into pot. Add the margarine and garlic mixture, nutmeg, white pepper, and salt to taste.
  5. Begin mashing mixture with a fork, and add vegan creamer and oat milk. Use more oat milk for lighter texture and less for thicker texture.
  6. (Creamer and milk may be substituted with other vegan dairy replacements).
