The Greek nation love lamb, and it is particularly served at Easter either spit roast, or butterflied, or all the family take a hand in making it. Skordelia is a garlic mashed potato, but we have added a little twist to match our favourite lamb flavours.

No. of servings:              4 – 6

Preparation Time:        10 minutes

Cook Time:                      20 minutes (for the potatoes)

Ingredients

  • 4 very large potatoes
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 2tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1tbsp lemon zest
  • 85g/3oz butter
  • 4tbsp olive oil
  • 3tbsp fresh chopped mint
  • 85g/3oz skinned almonds
  • Seasoning to taste

Method

Peel and chop the potatoes. Place in a saucepan and boil until soft. Drain and set aside for a few minutes.

In the meantime, place the garlic, almonds, zest and lemon juice into your blender. Add potatoes and blitz until very smooth, almost like a puree.

Add seasoning and blitz again to mix thoroughly.

Serve with lamb (or any other meat) and enjoy!
