AWESOME and soooooo easy!! I made this Vegan by using non-dairy butter, rice milk and veggie stock. I omitted the cream. I also used Yukon Gold potatoes instead of Russet since YGs are a smoother and creamier texture. I served it with a dollop of Grapeseed Oil Vegenaise and 3 orange supremes. It is DIVINE both hot and cold. Soooo creamy! I am so impressed with myself! Thanks Norahs Girl!
