The Best Vegan Mashed Potatoes

Creamy and rich yet fluffy and light vegan mashed potatoes are possible! It’s the two types of potatoes you use and my addition of miso butter that make them just as good as the classic version loaded with dairy.

Rich Herby Mashed Potatoes
Directions
7 STEPS
1
In a large pot of cold water, add the potatoes and garlic, and bring to a boil. Add 2 teaspoons of kosher salt and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 20 to 30 minutes.
2
While the potatoes cook, heat the whole milk, 4 tablespoons butter, chopped sage, and thyme sprigs in a saucepan over medium heat until the butter has melted. Remove from heat and let the herbs sit in the warm milk until the potatoes are done. Remove the thyme sprigs.
3
Drain the potatoes and garlic, and return them to the pot. Mash the potatoes over low heat, or use a stand mixer with the paddle attachment.
4
Add the herbed milk mixture and crème fraîche to the mashed potatoes. Mix until smooth and combined.
5
In a skillet, melt 6 tablespoons butter over medium heat until just browned. Whisk in any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
6
Pour the browned butter into the mashed potatoes, and mix well. Season with 1 teaspoon fresh black pepper.
7
Serve the potatoes warm, topped with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and chopped fresh chives.
