Some days I just need to eat comfort food. Yes this dinner was followed by a plate of steamed greens and some fruit to balance me out. In comparison to a non vegan version this is a healthier non dairy version. Plus this recipe is packed with nutritional benefit.

Ingredients for mashed potatoes :
2 medium yellow potatoes
8 broccoli florets
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
3 tablespoons hemp hearts
2 tablespoons flax seeds
1 tablespoon better than bouillon vegetable base low sodium ( in replacement of butter or olive olive, you can use butter or olive oil I limit my use of both)
1/3 cup almond milk
Sea salt / black pepper to taste

Ingredients for cheese sauce :
1/2 cups cashews soaked and drained
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 carrot
1 tablespoon Sriracha
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon tumeric powder
1/4 cup almond milk ( maybe more to reach a creamy consistency )

Directions:
Add potatoes and broccoli to a pot of water and let cook until the potatoes are fully cooked. Drain and add back to pot. Add in all the seasoning and milk and mash. Then mix in cheese sauce. You will have left over cheese sauce.

Enjoy!
