Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Mushroom Gravy

Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Mushroom Gravy
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

Making vegan mashed potatoes is really simple. You just need two simple ingredient swaps, and I love adding garlic for a rich savory flavor.

Mushroom gravy is a fantastic alternative to meat-based gravy, and is so flavorful that I love it even though I’ve never liked gravy.

The key for a good mushroom gravy is to fully cook the mushrooms, so that they get really dark and brown, and to use a good quality red wine and/or balsamic vinegar for a full-bodied flavor.

The secret to making super creamy mashed potatoes is to make sure they cook fully, and then rather than mashing them puree them with a hand blender or beaters.

Seriously, it makes the most amazing texture. I do the same thing when I make mashed sweet potatoes and I get slightly addicted to the whipped texture.

I included these mashed potatoes, along with an alternative nutrient-dense version, as one of the side dishes I included in the holiday menu I put together for my Healthy Holiday Guide, which I’ll be posting for sale very very soon! In time for Thanksgiving, I promise 🙂

And hope you enjoy the ‘throwback’ video making this dish in my old kitchen.
