Recipe Ingredients


Yield: Mashed Potatoes and Gravy (10 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: Large pot, colander, potato masher, saucepan, whisk, mixing bowl
Mashed Potatoes
  • 5 pounds red potatoes
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
Recipe Directions


Mashed Potatoes
  • Put a large pot on the stove on high heat filled half way with water with a pinch of salt.
  • Cut all the potatoes into smaller chunks with the skin on.
  • When the water reaches a boil, carefully place the potatoes inside the water and allow to boil for 15-20 minutes. Check for doneness by using a fork to check how easy it is to pierce a potato.
  • Turn off the stove and strain out the water using a colander. Return the pot to the same burner on the stove.
  • Add the butter, milk, salt, and pepper and mash all the potatos together until your desired texture. Add more of any of these ingredients to your taste.
  • Set a large saucepan on the stove at medium-high heat. Add the butter to the pan and using your whisk, keep the butter moving as it starts to melt.
  • Once the butter as melted, add flour 1 tbsp at a time into the pan. You want to whisk 1 tbsp of flour at a time into the pan and whisk constantly until all the flour is incorporated. Once incorporated, add the next 1 tbsp of flour and repeat until all the flour is incorporated. Watch the video below to see this in action.
  • Mix the almond milk, vegetable stock, and soy sauce in a large container. Pour small amounts of this liquid into the sauce pan and whisk constantly until incorporated. Do this until all the liquid is incorporated and smooth.
  • Keep whisking this liquid for another 10 minutes.
  • Add the spices, salt, and pepper at this time.
  • Keep whisking for another 5-10 minutes until the gravy has reduced and becomes thicker. Serve immediately, enjoy!

Package leftovers separately. Reheat mashed potatoes in a pot over the stove. Reheat gravy in a saucepan over the stove.

vegan mashed potatoes with gravy on top in a bowl

This classic recipe is a must-have in your household. While this recipe has a rich flavor, it doesn't use a lot of processed ingredients, tons of fat, or fake meaty flavors using a ton of sodium.

These vegan mashed potatoes and gravy are pure and simple, delicious, focusing on the ingredients themselves.

What I love most about this recipe is really how easy it is to make. While the directions at first seem daunting, it's very easy the second time around. After a while, you won't need to measure anything either, relying simply on taste-testing.

Can I make this gluten-free?

Sure! Instead of all-purpose flour, you can use a gluten-free flour of your choice or cornstarch. Because this recipe was written for these ingredients, you might need to adjust how much gluten-free flour you might need.

Are mashed potatoes and gravy a whole food?

You could certainly adjust it to be a whole food meal! To do this, omit the butter in the recipe and use a whole-grain flour. When starting the gravy, simply start with some of the vegetable stock, almond milk, and soy sauce mixture instead of the butter.

I like my mashed potatoes to be heavier, how can I do that?

Heavier mashed potatoes usually means more fat. To do this, add more butter to your mashed potatoes and less milk. Consider buying a vegan cream instead of almond milk as well.
