  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • 2 Tbsp Vegan Cream Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Vegan Butter
  • ½ Tbsp Chives diced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • Salt and Pepper for taste
  • Olive Oil


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease it with cooking spray.
  • Peirce your sweet potatoes with a fork a few times and place on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil.
  • Cut your butternut squash in half and remove the seeds with a spoon. Place on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Cook for 30-45 minutes, or until you can pierce the butternut squash and potatoes with a fork. I suggest checking around the 30 minute mark. The butternut squash will likely cook quicker than the potatoes, so pull it out if it does. The range in time is due to the size of the produce you choose.
  • Allow the potatoes and squash to cool enough to be touched. Cut open the potato and scoop the insides out into a bowl. Scoop the insides of the squash into the bowl as well.
  • Using a masher, fork or hand mixer, mash the squash and potatoes until they are your desired consistency.
  • Place minced garlic and vegan butter into a microwave safe dish and heat until melted, approx. 30 seconds. Pour over the mash.
  • Fold in vegan cream cheese, chives and salt and pepper until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to four days.


Potatoes– This dish calls for sweet potatoes, but you can easily use white potatoes as well. The color will be a little different, and they will be less sweet, but they are just as good. You also can omit potatoes all together and use another starch, such as more butternut squash, acorn squash or turnips.
Butternut Squash– You may use an alternative to this, such as acorn squash. You may also omit this entirely and solely use sweet potatoes.
Garlic– You may omit garlic if you do not like the taste, or you may sub this for 1 tbsp of garlic powder. If you do use powder, do not microwave it with the butter.
Chives- You may omit this ingredient, or you may use onions, shallots or bunching onions.
Vegan Cream Cheese- You can substitute vegan sour cream for this.
Other Option Toppings- Caramelized onions, vegan bacon, vegan cheddar cheese and rosemary would all be excellent additions.
