Crushed Potatoes

Basic Recipe 63

Ingredients

  • 500 g Bintje potatoes or similar waxy potatoes, skin on
  • 50 ml Extra virgin olive oil
  • Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Chives, sliced
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Method

Scrub the potatoes under cold running water, then cook in a steamer for 15–20 minutes until tender, depending on their size. Remove from the steamer and peel when cool enough to handle. Warm the extra virgin olive oil over a low heat in a heavy-based saucepan and add the potatoes, crushing with a fork into small pieces. Season with salt, freshly ground pepper and a squeeze of lemon. Remove from the heat and cover with clingfilm until ready to serve. Fold through the sliced chives just before serving to prevent them from discolouring.
