Mashed potatoes are a family favorite in many households that can easily be made vegan by using non-dairy milk.

The finished volume of mashed potatoes is slightly larger than the potatoes, so select the number of potatoes to be used based upon how much you think the people will eat in a single meal. 

Wash and peel the potatoes and place then in a covered dish for cooking in the microwave oven, or in a pot of boiling water to cook them on the stovetop.

When the potatoes are tender, stop cooking.  If cooking on the stovetop, remove them from the water, and place in a large mixing bowl.

Mash the potatoes with a potato masher, and add a little rice milk, soy milk, or water (cooking water) to aid in the mashing and to achieve the desired consistency.

Serve and enjoy as is or with vegan gravy.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
