Keywords: saute entree vegan vegetarian

Ingredients (Serves 4)

    For potatoes
    • 2 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, washed, peeled and cut lengthwise into quarters
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond or soy milk (add more if necessary)
    • 1/4 cup vegan margarine (Earth Balance and Smart Balance are options)
    • 1 teaspoon salt (1 teaspoon more salt for the cooking water)
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    For Mushrooms & Spinach
    • 1 tbsp oil
    • 1 medium yellow onion
    • 1 lb mushrooms of your choice, chopped
    • 3 garlic gloves, minced
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 4 handful of raw spinach

    Instructions

    In a large pot, add potatoes then cover with water and salt.

    Cover with lid and bring to a boil. Cook until soft.

    While the potatoes are cooking, in a large skillet add oil.

    Then saute onion for about 7-8 minutes on medium heat until translucent.

    Next, add in mushrooms and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Mix in garlic, cumin, salt and black pepper.

    Stir in garlic and continue cooking for about a minute.

    Then add in spinach, stirring frequently until wilted.

    Turn off heat and place skillet to the side.

    Once the potatoes are done, drain the water and place back into the pot.

    Next, add in almond or soy milk, vegan margarine, salt, black pepper and garlic powder.

    With a potato masher, mash the potatoes until you get your desired consistency (try not to over mash because it will make the potatoes have a gluey texture).

    Adjust seasoning for the potatoes and mushroom mixture, if necessary.

    Enjoy!
