Gather ingredients 

To cook potatoes and cauliflower: Clean cauliflower and potatoes. Cut into large pieces. 
Place in a large pot and cover with water.
Cover, bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer. 
Cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. 
Meanwhile, chop parsley. 
Potatoes are ready when a knife can easily be inserted and the potato slides off. 

To make mash: When potatoes are done, drain potatoes and cauliflower. 
Return the potatoes and cauliflower to the same hot pot and let any excess water steam off. 
Add the remaining ingredients: almond milk, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and parsley. 
Usea a potato masher and mash away!  
If you prefer a creamier potato, use a hand mixer. 

Serve with Braised Fennel and Cannellini Beans, Mushroom Port Gravy, or under any favorite stew or braise.

Chef's Tips: Using Yukon Gold Potatoes means you don't have to peel them.  You can also use butterball potatoes, or, for a little color, red-skinned potatoes.
