Organic Vegan Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
( Serves 8 )

  • 8-10 large Russet Idaho Baking Potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch-sized pieces
  • 1 Cup Earth Balance Buttery Spread
  • ½ Cup Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • 3 teaspoons Goya Adobo Seasoning, without cumin and pepper
  • 3 teaspoons onion powder
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder

Fill a medium-sized stainless steel pot halfway with water. Bring the water to a rapid boil. Reduce heat to medium and gently pour in the cut potatoes. If necessary, add more water. Stir the potatoes a bit so they can cook evenly. Check them occasionally with a fork. When the potatoes are soft and tender, turn off the heat and drain them in a colander in the sink. When the potatoes are well drained, return them to the pot or put them in a dry clean bowl. Mash the potatoes thoroughly until there are no lumps. Gently stir in the seasonings and mix thoroughly and evenly until the potato mixture is creamy. This makes a wonderful delicious Thanksgiving dish! Serve and enjoy!
