Vegan Mashed Potatoes (Instant Pot or Stovetop)
Tips for a Smooth Vegan Thanksgiving
- Make what you can the day before. All of the appetizers can be made a day in advance, as well as the desserts. Depending on what main dish and sides you choose, some of the ingredients can be prepped the day before (such as cooking the lentils for the lasagna, chopping vegetables, making the salad dressing for Caesar Salad, make the pie crusts for pot pie, etc).
- Cook items that are best served straight from the oven last. This includes the Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, and Vegan Gravy. Luckily the sweet potato casserole and green bean casserole cook at the same temperature, so that makes things easier.
- Make the main dish earlier in the day and re-warm near meal time. The Vegan Meatloaf, Lentil Loaf, Pot Pies, Lasagna and Stuffed Shells all can be made earlier in the day and then re-warmed before the big meal.
- If you have an Instant Pot, use it to make the mashed potatoes. I love how it keeps them nice and warm until dinner time!
Happy Holidays! xoxo Nora
