Ingredients

  • 3 pounds baby dutch potatoes* quartered
  • 1.5 cups non-dairy milk unsweetened
  • 1.5 cups non-dairy creamer** unsweetened
  • 8 cloves garlic peeled and smashed
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme plus more for serving
  • 5 sage leaves
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 4 ounces vegan cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter plus more for serving

Instructions

  • Add the potatoes, non-dairy milk, non-dairy creamer, garlic, thyme and sage to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. You want the potatoes to be fork tender.
  • Discard the sage and thyme. Drain the potatoes - being sure to reserve the milk/cream. Place the potatoes back in the slow cooker with the vegan cream cheese, vegan butter, 1 cup of the reserved milk and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher, adding more of the reserved milk until your desired consistency is reached. Taste and add more salt & pepper as needed. Cover and keep the potatoes on warm until ready to serve.
  • Serve with vegan butter and fresh thyme.

Notes

*You can peel the potatoes or leave the skin on. 
**I get my non-dairy creamer in the coffee creamer section. If you can't find it, just sub with more non-dairy milk.
