  • 3 lb gold potatoes quartered
  • 2/3 cup vegetable broth
  • 1.5 cup unsweetened dairy-free milk of choice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  • Combine the quartered potatoes and vegetable broth in the instant pot and secure the lid in the sealing position. Set the Instant Pot to steam and set the time for 7 minutes.
  • While the potatoes cook, heat the dairy-free milk and butter in a small saucepan until just before it simmers. Remove from the heat.
  • When the instant pot time is up, use the quick release function. After the quick release finishes, remove the lid carefully.
  • Add the heated milk mixture, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and mash until you reach the desired consistency for mashed potatoes. We like a few chunks!
