I’ll be the first to admit I always cook to many potatoes to mash, yup even if it’s not Christmas, thanksgiving or easter! I think I just like having left over gravy and potatoes in my fridge. There is a method to my madness!?
What makes these vegan mashed potatoes creamy?
I use vegetable broth, vegan cream cheese, plant milk and butter to take this potato recipe over the top and make them super flavourful and creamy
Best potatoes for mash?
I use high starch potatoes like russets or a combinations of Yukon gold and russets for mashed potatoes, as they require less mixing to acquire a creamy texture, and I prefer the flavour. Red and white potatoes require more mashing to achieve a creamy texture and can easily become gluey,
How to make Instant Pot Vegan Mashed Potatoes:
Peel, wash and quarter the potatoes. (If potatoes are large cut them into 6ths). Add them to your Instant pot with the veggie stock. Cover with lid and secure it properly.
Set the pressure valve to ‘Seal’ Then Press the “Pressure Cooker’ button and manually set the timer for 9 minutes with the + and – signs (make sure it says high pressure) It will then start automatically.
While potatoes are cooking whisk the milk, cream cheese, butter and spices in a small pot on medium heat until melted and combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
When time is up carefully and quickly turn the pressure release valve from ‘seal’ to ‘Venting’ ( I use a dishcloth, it will be hot) Once all the pressure is released and pin has dropped, remove the lid. Drain the potatoes and return to the instant pot.
With a potato masher, mash the potatoes and stir in the warm milk mixture until combined. Season with salt and pepper if necessary and serve garnished with chopped chives and a pad of butter if you like.
Enjoy! Delicious served with my Vegan Salsbury Steak (meatloaf) and Mushroom Gravy!
