Fasting, vegan and vegetarian fluffy mashed potatoes in just 20 minutes.
With almond milk and nutmeg aroma.

Mashed potatoes (purée) is a simple food that is usually served as a side dish. Such as for soy fillets with oregano (ladorigani), Greek lentil soutzoukakia, no-meatballs in tomato sauce, vegan loaf, patties or mushroom no-meat balls.

Since potatoes are the basis of our recipe, we want as tasty potatoes as possible. Ideally, we use organic ones. Another rule of thumb is the potatoes to be as yellow potatoes as possible on the inside.

Our recipe is super simple and only takes 20 minutes. And from utensils only a pot and a fork.

To make it fluffy, use almond milk and for the aroma, add a little grated nutmeg. If it is freshly ground, even better! If you want you can use soy milk instead of almond milk. It will come out a little fluffier, but also a little sweeter.

Accompany it with your favorite foods or try it plain with a little sauce. No matter how you serve it will be enjoyable!

Bon appétit!

Ingredients for vegan mashed potatoes (purée)

  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (optional)
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • salt and pepper


Vegan mashed potatoes (purée)

  • Bring the water to a boil. Peel and cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces and boil for 15 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork.
  • Mash them in a bowl with a fork, mix with the rest of the ingredients and your vegan mashed potatoes are ready!
  • Taste and depending on your preferences you can add extra olive oil, almond milk, salt, pepper and/or nutritional yeast.



  • When mixing, you can add a tablespoon of nutritional yeast.
  • Check how light you want your vegan purée to be, by adding a little almond milk, stirring and tasting.
  • If you want to give a more beautiful yellow color, add ¼ tsp turmeric in the pot you boil the potatoes.
  • If you want to make variations of your purée, you can add boiled and mashed carrots or sweet potatoes. You can also add sautéed onions or leeks.
  • The whole nutmeg, when you grate it before adding it to your food, has a more intense aroma than the one already grated. Its aroma is much fresher and a little more intense.
