Why settle for boiled potatoes when some lemon, basil and a little elbow grease can turn the humble spud into a truly delicious side.
650 chat potatoes, washed and scrubbed
2 lemons, 1 zested, 1 sliced
1 small handful basil, leaves only
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, to serve
- Put the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 15-20 mins until tender.
- Drain the potatoes and leave to steam-dry in a colander for 2 mins. Return to the pan and gently crush the potatoes, leaving them chunky.
- Add the lemon zest and half the basil, then season and stir. Serve topped with the remaining basil and lemon slices, and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.
