Fluffy, creamy, and flavorful, these Vegan Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes are the ultimate mashed potato dish.


  • 1 medium-sized garlic bulb, peeled into individual cloves *
  • 5 lbs. Russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 ½ inch cubes
  • 1 ¾ cups unsweetened plain plant milk

Spice/Herb Ingredients:

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ to 1 ¼ teaspoons sea salt (+/-) *
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper (+/-)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Peel the individual garlic cloves, place them inside a pouch of parchment paper, then cover the pouch with foil. Place the pouch on a baking sheet or inside a small ramekin.
  3. Place into a preheated 400 F oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, check the garlic cloves to ensure they are perfectly tender. If tender, remove from the oven set aside. Keep them wrapped until ready to use.
  4. Place the Spice/Herb Ingredients in a small bowl, mix well, set aside.
  5. In the meantime, add the peeled and cubed potatoes into a large stock pot, cover with cold water. Sprinkle with sea salt, bring to a boil. Boil until just perfectly tender, about 15 to 25 minutes.
  6. When the potatoes are tender, drain thoroughly. Turn off the burner, then place the pot of cooked and drained potatoes back on the burner for 3 to 4 minutes to dry out the potatoes a tad.
  7. Remove the cooked potatoes from the burner, mash the potatoes with a potato masher.
  8. Remove the roasted garlic cloves from the parchment paper package and mash them with a fork then add them to the mashed potatoes.
  9. Add the plant milk and the Spice/Herb Mix. Beat with an electric beater (or continue with the potato masher) until the potatoes are perfectly smooth and the roasted garlic is evenly distributed throughout the mashed potatoes. Serve and enjoy!
