What I like best about this recipe is that it can be made in under 30 minutes and that includes making the cheese sauce.  We have made it using red potatoes, golden potatoes, and sweet potatoes. They all taste delicious. I might even suggest using purple potatoes as they would go great in this dish as well.

My two teenage boys love this dish and I love that it is made using real food ingredients. It is vegan friendly, dairy-free, and gluten free and whole foods plant-based.

This quick and easy Vegan Cheesy Mashed Potatoes can be made in under 30 minutes and is a dish your whole family will love.


  • 5 Medium potatoes or 4 small sweet potatoes, chopped into squares
  • 1 ½ Cups of Vegan Cheese Sauce
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 TBSP Garlic Powder  
  • 1 TBSP Onion Powder
  • 1 TSP Sea Salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 TBSP Dried Chives


To make this dish I start by washing the potatoes and cutting them into squares. I usually like to keep the skin on our potatoes to make sure we are getting the
extra fiber from them. I then fill a medium sauce pan with water, and then I add in the cut-up potatoes and garlic cloves, and bring to a boil for about 10 minutes. I then reduce them to medium heat and let cook for another 15 minutes
or until soft. I then strain the potatoes and then add them back into the medium sauce pan and mix in the cheese sauce, some garlic powder, onion powder, and sea salt and then I top them with dried chives and serve.
