How to Make Creamy Vegan Mashed Potatoes

  1. Peel potatoes if you like (we leave skin on personally), and chop them.
  2. Put potatoes in a large/medium pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover the pot with a lid and cook for an additional 20-25 minutes.
  3. Drain potatoes, then place them back into the pot and cook on high for 45-60 seconds. It will help remove some moisture.
