Vegan Mashed Potatoes with Caraway Seeds and Red Onion

Vegan Mashed Potatoes


Vegan mashed potatoes with caraway seeds, onion, and garlic.


  • 6 cups diced yellow potatoes (6-7 medium potatoes, peeled)
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • sea salt
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup cashew milk (Start with 1/2 cup and add more depending on how thick/thin you want the mashed potatoes to be)*


  1. Add the potatoes into a big pot and cover with water. Add the caraway seeds and a good pinch of salt and bring to a boil.
  2. Cook for 20-25 mins or until tender. It's better to overcook these than undercook.
  3. While the potatoes are cooking, sautee the onion and garlic.
  4. Add the oil into a pan, turn the heat on high. Once it's hot, add the onion and sautee for 5-7 mins or until translucent, stirring frequently. Add the minced garlic, cook for another 1-2 mins. Turn the heat off and set aside.
  5. Drain the potatoes, add 1/2 cup of the milk, mash and add milk as you go until you get desired consistency.
  6. Stir in the sauteed onion with garlic.
  7. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.


*I recommend using cashew milk because I find it has the mildest taste of all the plant milks I've tried in this recipe. You can use any plant milk you like.
