- potatoes (I prefer small red skinned potatoes or small golden potatoes or a mixture of the two)
- almond milk (I prefer Silk’s Unsweetened Almond Milk)
- vegan butter (I prefer Earth Balance)
- salt and pepper
In a pot boil (washed but unpeeled) potatoes in salted water. While potatoes are boiling add some almond milk, butter and salt and pepper to a large bowl. Once potatoes are fork tender, drain them in a colander. Then add them to the large bowl that already has the other ingredients. Hand smash ’em and incorporate all the ingredients. Taste. Add more milk, butter, salt and pepper as needed. Please note that these smashed potatoes can be made ahead of time and placed in either a warming drawer or a crock pot till ready to serve hot. If you want to move beyond the classic smashed potatoes you can always add things like vegan cheese, vegan sour cream, chives, vegan bacon, etc.
