SMASHED POTATOES WITH SOUR CREAM & CHIVES RECIPE (VEGAN)

SMASHED POTATOES WITH SOUR CREAM & CHIVES RECIPE (VEGAN)

Final(1).jpg

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are doing well.  Today I am sharing a vegan recipe featuring Smashed Potatoes with Vegan Sour Cream and Chives! It’s so good, you can’t stop at just one. I can’t take all the credit for the smashing technique as I learned it from Chef Jamie Oliver but I thought why not share it with my readers!

For this recipe, I am collaborating with EarthFresh and I am using their organic Baby Yellow Potatoes. These potatoes make this recipe easy because there is no peeling involved!  All they need is a good rinse, 10 minutes to boil and 30 minutes in the oven! I’m also using vegan sour cream, fresh chives, garlic cloves, garlic powder, olive oil and salt.

I hope you try this recipe out and if you enjoy it, please share it with your family and friends.

Take care,
Christie
