Mashed Potatoes with Rosemary and Garlic

These Rosemary Almond Mashed Potatoes are vegan, fluffy, creamy, and flavored with rosemary and garlic! A perfect side to any dinner meal!

While I was looking out my kitchen window the other day, I noticed our rosemary was the only herb withstanding winter. The rosemary started to call me, so I put my boots on, went outside, and picked some of the healthier twigs.

Thinking of what to make, I started boiling some red potatoes and added a couple of fresh rosemary twigs and garlic cloves to the boiling water. After the potatoes were thoroughly cooked, I had a bite to see if they tasted anything like rosemary. There was a hint of rosemary flavor, in which I knew I had to add more to make the potent herb flavor standout.

Mashed Potatoes with Rosemary and Garlic

Rosemary Almond Mashed Potatoes Ingredients:

  • Red potatoes – I love the flavor of red potatoes, and their skins are very delicate and tender.
  • Olive oil – Adds flavor to the potatoes while they are boiling.
  • Garlic cloves – Peel and smash them with the back of your knife and add them to the boiling water. Don’t discard them when you drain the water. Mash them up with the potatoes. This adds a nice garlicky flavor.
  • Fresh rosemary – Adds flavor to the potatoes while they are boiling and then add more before serving, depending on how much rosemary flavor you want.
  • Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Vegan butter (or sub regular butter if not vegan). We like Miyokos vegan butter for these mashed potatoes.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – either make your own or use store-bought.

These vegan mashed potatoes are super delicious, and they make the perfect side for where your dinner calls for it! We hope you all love it! Enjoy!

These Rosemary Almond Mashed Potatoes are vegan fluffy, creamy, and flavored with rosemary and garlic! A perfect side to any dinner meal!


  • 3 cups red potatoes (cubed)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 12 tsp fresh rosemary (minced)
  • pinch of salt and black pepper (plus more to taste)
  • 2 tsp vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk*


  1. Peel the bad parts of the red potato skins and cut the potatoes into cubes. Add the potatoes to a pot and cover with water. 
  2. Add a pinch of salt and black pepper, 2 fresh rosemary twigs, and give it a quick stir. Add olive oil on top (do not stir; this will reduce the foam when cooking). 
  3. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat and cooked the potatoes until tender and easy to pierce with a fork.
  4. Once thoroughly cooked, remove from the heat, discard the rosemary twigs and water. Add the potatoes to a medium-size bowl and mash with either a fork or masher. 
  5. Add vegan butter, almond milk, freshly minced rosemary, and continue mashing.  Taste and add additional salt and black pepper as needed. Serve immediately. 


* Start off by adding 1/4 cup of almond milk to your mashed potatoes at a time until desired creaminess.
