Defrickinlicious!!! love, love, loved it! I am trying to be vegan 5 days a week, and could make this every week. The gravy recipe could be halved or quartered, it makes too much, unless you are saving some to eat with your Thanksgiving turkey, but that's not vegan is it? lol
These potatoes were lovely and fluffy. I doubled the recipe, but didn't double the soymilk entirely. Made the day before and was able to just reheat about 90 minutes before dinner. There was no discussion at the dinner table about them being vegan or not, and the serving dish was scraped clean. The gravy was tasty too. Thanks Carol!
Very good potatoes. My girlfriend is vegan so my goal was to make Thanksgiving for 8 vegan (without the others knowing it was vegan!) and this was very sucessful. I couldn't believe how creamy they were from the soy. The gravy was just ok, but I did not use the nutritional yeast so I didn't follow the recipe exactly. (Edited to add an extra star a year later- Made just the potatoes again for Thanksgiving and they were FANTASTIC!).
ate myself sick and then just had to go back for seconds here. So good. Measurements were perfect. I only used 5 T of soy in the gravy as we had a guest with sodium issues and it was still delicious! Anything with 13 cloves of garlic can't be wrong.
Just finished Thanksgiving dinner and these potatoes and gravy were fantastic! Everyone raved about the gravy. (Mashed potatoes were delish too -- couldn't tell they didn't use cow's milk.) The gravy makes a lot -- about 5 cups. The directions were a little confusing. I used the nutritional yeast in the gravy (mixed in with the flour and cashews) not in the potatoes.
when i made this, i doubled both recipes to ensure there was enough for the whole family. there was tons of extra gravy, so i would recommend just doing one batch of that if you need to double. i used redskin potatoes and didn't peel them. everyone (vegan and non) raved about the potatoes and gravy. i have frozen the extra gravy, so i will be enjoying this for a while.
The gravy was amazing. I cooked a vegan thanksgiving dinner for myself and 2 vegetarian friends to eat along with the "meat eaters" thanksgiving dinner. I didn't make the potatoes since I was already making mashed yams, but I needed a gravy to go along with a lentil loaf I made for the entree. The gravy is so yummy and thick and wonderful. Make sure you use the "optional" nutritional yeast because it really adds something to the flavor. Even the carnivores were hitting up my vegan gravy bowl rather than the traditional turkey gravy! this one is great!
The gravy is just amazing! The potatoes are great too, but I would say the best part of this recipe is the sensational gravy!
Yummy! The gravy is very flavorful and goes so well with the mashed potatoes. My husband even enjoyed this! (seeing as he's a "steak & potatoes" kinda guy, and not much into anything with soy, nutritional yeast, etc., this is a small miracle!) I used half tamari and half Braggs Liquid Aminos. Am I undecisive or what? Carol, this recipe is going on my next Thanksgiving menu... finally, a mashed potato & gravy recipe I can truly enjoy and feel good about eating, too!!!
This was great! I've never made mashed potatoes with soy milk before but this was really good. Very nice and creamy - I didn't think it was lacking anything from the absence of cow's milk. The cashews were a nice addition to the gravy as well.
