Plant-Based Potato Salad


I'm not a fan of some of the available mayonnaise replacements out there, so I had to come up with a new base for my potato salad. I'm real pleased with the results!

6 servings


  • 1 cup great northern beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 1 medium avocado, diced

  • 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard

  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt

  • 2 stalks celery, cut into 1/4-inch slices

  • cup chopped onion


  1. Pour great northern beans into a saucepan and cook over medium heat until very soft, about 30 minutes.

  2. At the same time, place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until fork-tender but not mushy, about 12 minutes. Drain.

  3. Transfer beans to a large bowl. Add avocado and mash. Add mustard, yeast, lemon juice, and salt; stir until mixture is smooth. Add potatoes, celery, and onion and mix well.

  4. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

If you use dried beans, soak them overnight and then pressure cook them for 30 minutes.
