Ingredients

  • 2 pounds potatoes cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic finely minced
  • 6 ounces baby spinach leaves by weight

Instructions

For the potatoes:

  • Into a large saucepan, add the cubed potatoes and enough water to cover by 1-inch. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low. Simmer until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, approximately 15 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander then return to the saucepan.

For the spinach:

  • While the potatoes are simmering, add the olive oil to a medium-size skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot add the baby spinach leaves. Cook, stirring frequently until the leaves begin to wilt. Add the minced garlic then continue cooking an additional 1 minute. Remove cooked spinach to a cutting board. Rough chop and set aside.

Putting it all together:

  • Into the pot with the potatoes, add the vegan butter, unsweetened almond milk, sea salt, and ground black pepper. Use a potato masher to mash to desired consistency.
  • Add the cooked spinach. Stir everything together to combine.
  • Adjust seasoning taste.
  • Serve hot.
