    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!).

    ate myself sick and then just had to go back for seconds here. So good. Measurements were perfect. I only used 5 T of soy in the gravy as we had a guest with sodium issues and it was still delicious! Anything with 13 cloves of garlic can't be wrong.

    Just finished Thanksgiving dinner and these potatoes and gravy were fantastic! Everyone raved about the gravy. (Mashed potatoes were delish too -- couldn't tell they didn't use cow's milk.) The gravy makes a lot -- about 5 cups. The directions were a little confusing. I used the nutritional yeast in the gravy (mixed in with the flour and cashews) not in the potatoes.
