This is a well-known Greek side dish called “Skordalia”. It is usually served with batter fried salt cod, but suits any meat or vegetable dish. Can also be served as a dip.

  • Place a pot filled with water over high heat.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of coarse salt and bring to a boil.
  • Chop the potatoes into small pieces and add them to the pot of boiling water.
  • Boil for 15-30 minutes, until they soften. (The boiling time depends on how large the size of the pieces of potato are.)
  • In a food processor, add the olive oil, garlic, white wine vinegar, salt and pepper.
  • Beat until the garlic completely breaks down.
  • When your potatoes are ready, and you can easily pierce them with a knife, drain and set aside for 5 minutes, to allow all of the steam to evaporate.
  • After 5 minutes, immediately transfer to a bowl and mash them with a potato masher.
  • Add the garlic-oil and stir to incorporate.
  • Season to taste.
  • Keep in mind that the more time goes by, the garlic smell becomes stronger and also, the puree becomes thicker and stiffer.
  • Sprinkle with some chopped fresh onions, chopped parsley and olive oil.
