These mashed potatoes are miraculous because they somehow smell like roasted chicken?!? And they are crazy good!

I chalk it up to the magical umami powers of caramelized onions and walnut butter.

There’s no need for gravy, and if you still think of mashed potatoes as just a side dish, try a big bowl of this and see if it changes your mind.


  • 5lbs russet potatoes
  • 1 lg yellow onion
  • 2c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 c walnut butter
  • 3 T nutritional yeast
  • 1 T kosher salt (or to taste)
  • Liberal Black pepper
  • Dash of Worcester sauce (optional)
  • Cilantro (optional)


Boil potatoes, drain, and mash. (Leave the skin on or off. For a super silky texture, peel the skin and use a ricer instead of mashing.)

Caramelize onions. Add remaining ingredients to onions and heat through, don’t boil. Pour most of this liquid onto potatoes and mix (but don’t over mix or the texture might become gummy). You might want to hold back some liquid if you’re serving them right away. But if your planning to refrigerate and reheat, add all the liquid. They will be a little wet but will dry out when refrigerated and reheated.

Mix with some cilantro for a bit of freshness (optional).
