Just a few simple ingredients can transform classic mashed potatoes into the perfect partner for any dish:
Add a grated red skinned eating apple, tossed in a little lemon juice to the mash just before serving.
Try adding a teaspoon or two of horseradish sauce to the mash just before serving with beef.
Stir in 1-2 teaspoons of pesto or mustard per person.
Add caramelised onions to a bowl of mash to serve with beef casserole
Mix in chopped fresh herbs such as oregano or dill, which are delicious with chicken or fish, or try basil or thyme if you're serving the mash with a tomato-based dish.
700g (1lb 9oz) smooth potatoes (such as Desiree), peeled and cut into chunks
150 ml (¼pt) milk
Freshly ground black pepper
An inventive and interesting table centrepiece, ideal for dinner parties. Crunchy golden filo pastry combined with crème fraîche and chicken makes an interesting combination.
"There’s nothing humble about this soup’s rich, creamy flavour – it tastes, remarkably, like mushrooms. And if it seems just a little too pared-back, it’s very easy to jazz it up with some nice finishing touches. Make sure the potatoes are well scrubbed before you peel them so the peels are very clean.
Try this potato bake for a delicious and nutritious evening meal. Taking just 15 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to bake this is great for those short on time.
