Vegan Mashed Potatoes

This recipe was created by Karen Wiens on 1/30/15.

The first time I had Connie’s mashed potatoes, I couldn’t believe how much better they tasted than mine (this is Karen but it’s Connie’s recipe). Anyone can make mashed potatoes but when I watched Connie make them, I realized what I was doing wrong and why hers were so much better. She uses less milk and is patient. They need time to beat. Connie prefers using the regular old fashioned hand held mixer over a beater like the KitchenAid. They are so good. And I’ve also realized, I like quite a bit of salt in them.
