Creamy Guilt-Free Garlic Mashed Potatoes



3 days….dun dun dun!

If you’re scrambling for recipes, I’ve got you covered!


Today’s post is going to be short and sweet on words and heavy (pleaseee pass the side dish recipes!) on the food. I’ve rounded up all of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes from the blog to give you a yummy and foolproof selection of sides, mains, and desserts that will impress your guests and have everyone asking for the recipe! Because we all know that Thanksgiving is about love, family, and sharing….but its also about how I make the best pumpkin pie EVER.


And mashed potatoes. Ok I lied, I have to talk for just a second. These mashed potatoes kick butt. Fluffy, creamy, lightly garlicky…vegan, gluten free, and lower cal! Win, win, win…win. The secret ingredient to keeping these fluffy and light is a little bit of cauliflower – the perfect way to cut out some of the potato calorie. And no one will have any clue, just make sure you boil them until very tender so they smoothly mash with the potatoes. Add just a little bit of vegan cream cheese and garlic and you have the perfect pot of creamy mashed potatoes. Classic and a crowd pleaser – these are absolutely making an appearance on my Turkey day table!


Have fabulous Thanksgivings everyone!

  3. These mashed potatoes sound amazing! And your photos are gorge! Cream cheese is a great idea! I wish I had read this before I did my huge shopping trip this morning. I was just planning on the old-fashioned method of adding butter, milk, salt and pepper until they taste ok.

    ps- Your new picture is totally adorable! Love it!
