Soy milk and olive oil add a delicious creaminess to this recipe for Vegan Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic & Kale!
When thinking about mashed potatoes, the words cream and butter are usually the first to come to mind, but for those that are dairy-free or vegan, that means no mashed potatoes in their life, until now that is!
By cooking the potatoes in Silk Unsweetened Soy Milk, they keep their nice creamy mashed potato texture, while remaining dairy-free and vegan!
The addition of kale adds a nice crunch to the creamy mashed potatoes, and the roasted garlic adds great flavor!
- 6 cloves garlic
- 3 tsp olive oil (divided)
- 2 lbs yukon gold potatoes (scrubbed clean & cut into 1 inch cubes)
- 4 cups Silk Unsweetened Soy Milk
- 2 tsp sea salt (divided)
- 4 cups fresh kale (chopped)
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp fresh chives (chopped)
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Place the garlic on a piece of foil, drizzle with 1 tsp olive oil.
Place in the oven and roast until very tender, about 20 minutes.
In the meantime, add the potatoes, soy milk and 1 tsp sea salt to a large pot.
Place on the stove over medium-high heat and bring to a low simmer. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
While the potatoes are cooking, heat the remaining 2 tsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the kale, remaining 1 tsp sea salt and black pepper, saute for 4-5 minutes, then set aside.
Once the potatoes are cooked fork-tender, drain and reserve the soy milk.
Mash the potatoes with a masher, then add the reserved soy milk back in ¼ cup at a time until you’ve reached your desired level of creaminess (I added 1 ½ cups of soy milk back to the potatoes). Add the roasted garlic cloves and mash into the potatoes. Mix in the kale and top with the fresh chives.
These mashed potatoes are the perfect side dish to compliment any meal!
