Wild Mushroom Smashed Potatoes

Wild Mushroom Smashed Potatoes


Mmmmmmm… mushrooms! Chanterelles, Morels, ME-OH-MY! We simply love mushrooms and if you are a mushroom lover, you will adore these Wild Mushroom Smashed Potatoes. They are vegan, gluten free, and absolutely delicious!


A Delicious Vegan Side

What could be better than creamy mushrooms on top of naturally buttery Yukon gold potatoes?! Not much! These smashed potatoes are a decadent side that pairs perfectly with just about anything.

Smashed potatoes are the easy route for anyone who grew up on mashed potatoes but maybe doesn’t want to put in the elbow grease. Mashing potatoes are hard work, right?!  But these vegan smashed potatoes are creamy and buttery with just the right amount of crispy browned bits.

However, then you have… the MUSHROOMS! We went for a wild mushroom mix of chanterelles and morels for this recipe but we also love porcini on these smashed potatoes too.  In fact, any mushroom would work…

  • Button, Crimini, Portobello…
  • Chicken of the Woods, Oyster, King Oyster, Porcini…
  • Black Trumpet, Enoki, Shiitake, Maitake…
  • And finally, Chanterelle and Morel


Consider Dried Mushrooms

Did we mention that we like mushrooms?!  But if you can find chanterelles and or morels, we would highly recommend them!  You won’t be sorry.

Also, if you happen to have extra mushroom topping left (we didn’t…) you can also put it over rice or even on top of a pizza.  So our advice, don’t skimp on the mushrooms! If you can’t find fresh or don’t want to spend too much, USE DRIED! Then you have them available anytime!
