If you are looking for a guilt-free mashed potato without any butter, try Skinny Miso Vegan Mashed Potatoes.
When I was a kid, my mom said I was a picky eater. In order to get me to eat, she served me mashed potatoes and Ritz crackers, which earned me the nickname “Cracker.” Apparently, at one point she worried I wouldn’t grow because all I ate was potatoes and crackers.
Although I ate mashed potatoes every day, I still LOVE vegan mashed potatoes. Over time, of course, I learned how to make delicious mashed potatoes without the butter and milk in typical mashed potatoes.
For those who are new to plant based cooking, I have found that veganizing my favorite foods, makes the transition easier. In fact, for me to get my entire family on the plant-based wagon, I changed the way I cooked by making simple changes.
For example, Skinny Miso Mashed Potatoes have three simple ingredients and require no seasoning. First, you want to use white or yellow miso paste, which are lighter and enhance flavors of food rather than overpower them.
The Miso, for instance, replaces the need for vegan butter, in the recipe. Secondly, I used unsweetened, unflavored Almond Milk, but you can use any unsweetened, unflavored plant milk.
To be honest, these mashed potatoes are so flavorful, I din’t even need vegan gravy. Check the Vegan Mashed Potatoes Recipe.
