Smashing Smashed Potatoes (that just happen to be vegan)



  • 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.


About Living Well

I am a vegan who loves food and loves life. Why am I vegan? Vegan living seemed to be a holistic way to live. Choosing to live as a vegan is helping me to live more environmentally conscious, more ethically, and more healthy. That said, I still wanted to be able to have foods that I loved. This site will be a place that I share ideas on living well and share vegan recipes. Some recipes are naturally vegan; other recipes I will take and veganize them. My influences in cooking are from my Granny (who is now 96 years old) who taught me how to make homemade buttermilk biscuits, syrup cookies, okra, and other southern comfort favorites; my mom, who knows how to host, and from living in places like London, Spain, and Costa Rica. When I am not cooking I am a professional artist. Cooking is just one more way I get to be creative. May these recipes inspire you, and may they always be delicious! P.S.
