Last year, I served my Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes, which was a big hit served with my yummy Vegan Gravy recipe. However for this Thanksgiving, I decided to experiment with a different flavor and try Vegan Garlic Rosemary Mashed Potatoes. It’s a hit!

Best Vegan Rosemary Garlic Mashed Potatoes

In my family we love garlic! I know some people can’t take the smell of garlic, and this recipe would be a problem if one of my family members didn’t love it. I’m so happy that we all do, so this recipe is perfect for garlic lovers like me. You can also check out my Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes!

Best Potatoes For Mashed Potatoes

I find the best potatoes for fluffy and creamy potatoes are Yukon and Russets. Waxy potatoes like Red Bliss may lead to ‘potato paste’ rosemary garlic mashed potatoes.

How To Make Vegan Garlic Rosemary Mashed Potatoes

For this recipe, I boiled my potatoes with rosemary with chopped garlic to bring out the flavors. You can sauté chopped garlic and rosemary and add after you have mashed the potatoes.

I also wanted a buttery flavor so I added some vegan butter. I used EARTH BALANCE BUTTERY SPREAD, my favorite butter substitute. However, if you don’t care for using a vegan butter, just leave it out and or add double the amount of olive oil.
