Defrickinlicious!!! love, love, loved it! I am trying to be vegan 5 days a week, and could make this every week. The gravy recipe could be halved or quartered, it makes too much, unless you are saving some to eat with your Thanksgiving turkey, but that's not vegan is it? lol
These potatoes were lovely and fluffy. I doubled the recipe, but didn't double the soymilk entirely. Made the day before and was able to just reheat about 90 minutes before dinner. There was no discussion at the dinner table about them being vegan or not, and the serving dish was scraped clean. The gravy was tasty too. Thanks Carol!
Very good potatoes. My girlfriend is vegan so my goal was to make Thanksgiving for 8 vegan (without the others knowing it was vegan!) and this was very sucessful. I couldn't believe how creamy they were from the soy. The gravy was just ok, but I did not use the nutritional yeast so I didn't follow the recipe exactly. (Edited to add an extra star a year later- Made just the potatoes again for Thanksgiving and they were FANTASTIC!).
