Vegan Mashed Potato Tricks
There’s nothing wrong with just switching the butter and milk for vegan versions in your favorite potato recipe, but half a container of nondairy sour cream or cream cheese, a few teaspoons of fresh crumbled sage, or some chopped artichoke hearts will make your spuds come alive. You can also simply add a shake of nutmeg or rosemary.
