Vegan mashed potatoes and sausage


Mashed potatoes



5 large golden potatoes, washed and peeled

1/4 cup almond milk

1/4 large sweet onion, minced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/8 cup vegetable stock

1 tbsp olive oil

1/8 cup vegan butter



Onion powder

Garlic powder

Nutritional yeast(optional)

Salt and pepper to taste




In a large pot on medium high heat, half fill with water. Cut the potatoes in large chunks, at least 2 inches wide, and place in water immediately. Let them boil until they can be punctured easily with a fork. Do not wait until they fall apart.


While your potatoes are boiling, in a small pan on medium low heat, sautéed onion, garlic, oil, and all spices except salt pepper.


Once the potatoes are finished cooking, place in a strainer and cover the top with a bowl. Place the pot back on medium heat. Add butter, vegetable stock, sautéed onion, garlic, salt and pepper, and spices until everything is simmering. Then add almond milk and stir until melded. Turn off heat and place potatoes back in pot. Place on a cool burner or countertop. Using a hand mixer, break up the potatoes until all of the ingredients are mixed together and there are no more chunks of potato. Then mix once more with a silicone spatula and serve.






Lightlife veggie sausage

1 large slice of whole loaf bread

1 slice of Chao cheese

1/2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tbsp vegan butter




Using a very sharp knife, cut into the plastic casing of the sausage. Cut a thick slice, about 1 inch thick. In a small pan on medium heat add the oil and the sausage patty. Using a metal spatula, flatten the patty until it is about 1/4 inch even thickness. When both sides are brown, add cheese to one side and turn down to medium low heat. Once the cheese is melted, add the slice of bread and let those stick together. Remove from heat and add the vegan butter to the pan. Once that is melted, put the sandwich back on, bread side down. Turn down the heat to low. Once the bread is golden brown remove from heat and serve.






1 can of whole kernel sweet corn

1/2 cup water

1 tbsp vegan butter




Drain the corn and place in a small pot on medium heat. Add water and butter. Once boiling, turn down to low heat. When ready to serve, drain the corn and place into a serving dish and serve.
