vegan mashed potatoes

Vegan mashed potatoes are super easy. Some potatoes. Some soy milk. A little bit of garlic. And voila. deliciously mutilated root veggies the whole family can enjoy.

I'm lazy. So I opt for the canned potatoes. Although nothing beats a fresh veg, that's a lot more work.

1 can diced potatoes
1/4 cup soy milk
3 tbls vegan margarine
1 tsp olive oil
3 cloves minced garlic
2 tbls salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tsps garlic powder
1 tsp basil

Add margarine and olive oil to large sauce pan and let the margarine slowly melt over medium heat. Saute garlic in the liquified fat.

Add potatoes and milk. Warm through over low heat for about 5-7 minutes. Turn off the flame, but leave the pot on the hot burner. Use a masher to turn the potato mixture into mashed potatoes.

Add seasonings. Stir. Let sit two minutes and taste. Adjust seasonings as desired.

Enjoy by itself with garlic toast or over warm rice. Add some black beans or garbanzos for a full protein and added texture.
