  • 7 large Yukon Gold potatoes (or any white or yellow potatoes), peeled and cut into quarters
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup oat cream, optional (coconut cream or your choice of dairy-free yogurt also works well)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley


  • Add the peeled and quartered potatoes to a large pot and add water just until the potatoes are covered.
  • Add the sea salt and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer and continue simmering until the potatoes are fork-tender (about 15-20 minutes).
  • Drain the potatoes and add the garlic, vegan butter, oat cream (if using - it's totally optional), and sea salt and pepper to the pot.
  • Mash the potatoes by hand until smooth, combining all the ingredients together while mashing.
  • Fold in the freshly chopped parsley and serve immediately.
