Notes

A flax egg is a vegan egg substitute, that is made up of ground flax seeds and water. Since, flax eggs are  100% natural, vegan, gluten-free,  it the perfect egg substitute. Even though eggs are not typically used in "mashed potatoes," a flax egg, mixed with the potato and milk makes a great binder. Instead of using butter or oil, the flax egg supplies the creaminess.
