  • Author: Morgan | Just What We Eat
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 20 min
  • Total Time: 30 min
  • Yield: 8 Servings 1x



Mashed Potato Ingredients

  • 3 lb russet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1 cup low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter (I use “Earth Balance Soy Free Vegan Buttery Sticks”)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Gravy Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup vegan butter, cubed (I use “Earth Balance Soy Free Vegan Buttery Sticks”)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch (or gluten free all-purpose flour)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/21 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Peel and cut potatoes into 2-3″ cubes.
  2. Add the potatoes to a large pot of water and boil for 15-20 minutes until a fork slides through the potatoes with ease.
  3. While the potatoes cook, prepare the gravy by adding 1/4 cup vegan butter to a small saucepan.
  4. Once the butter is melted, add the cornstarch and whisk to create a roux.
  5. Pour in 2 cups of vegetable broth, whisking constantly to avoid clumps.
  6. Add salt and pepper and lower heat for 10 minutes or until the gravy has thickened.  Whisk occasionally to avoid a film on top of the gravy.
  7. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot.
  8. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or use a hand mixer to make them extra smooth. 
  9. Add the remaining mashed potato ingredients to the pot and mix until well combined.
  10. Serve gravy over the mashed potatoes.
