Creamy Vegan Garlic Mashed Potatoes that are easy to make! These mashed potatoes are thick, creamy, garlicky, and a little cheesy. They are perfect as a side dish and they can be part of a delicious vegan thanksgiving dinner.


  • 3 medium Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 2 tbsp Miyoko’s or Earth Balance vegan butter
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Plant-Based Milk (I used almond)
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 Tsp Fresh Rosemary, minced
  • Salt to taste


  1. Dice potatoes into 2-3 inch pieces a faster cooking time.
  2. Set a medium pot of water to boil. Once boiling set to a low/medium simmer and add potatoes. Cook for 12-20 minutes depending on size.
  3. Poke with a fork to check softness. Once done drain, let cool off and peel potatoes if you’d like. Mash well.
  4. In the same pot add vegan butter and garlic to medium heat. Let cook for 1-2 minutes until garlic is golden.
  5. Add plant-based milk and nutritional yeast, mix well with butter and garlic. I recommend adding 1/2 cup milk to begin and then add more after potatoes have been added to achieve desired texture.
  6. Add salt and fresh rosemary. Mix well and taste. Adjust salt, nutritional yeast, and milk if needed.
  7. Serve with homemade vegan gravy or pair with your favorite vegan meats/chickpeas and more!
