Hello everyone!! Its been a while but I’m back! I have been so busy you wouldn’t believe…. But I have also had a kind of writers block…I just couldn’t think of recipes that I could add here.. This one is one of the recipes that I have recently made up, and is for all of you who love Potato Salad Minus the heavy mayonnaise, with lemon zest, garlic and chilli! Try to vary it to your palate, and add sweet/bell peppers or other vegetables..
5-7 Medium Sized Potatoes, cut, unpeeled and washed-Use Desiree, Baking Potatoes, or a whole bag of Baby New Potatoes.
4 Chopped Cloves Of Garlic
1 Lemon, with Grated Zest, and Juice, or to taste
2-3 Tablespoons of Truffle Oil
1 Teaspoon of Chopped Fresh Chilli/Powder/Flakes
Firstly, wash the potatoes in a colander, then cut the potatoes into one inch pieces. Preboil a kettle and put some water into a pot and a pinch of salt, add the potatoes and put to boil for 15 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile, chop the garlic and chilli, and grate the lemon peel. Check the potatoes, if cooked, drain and rinse in cold water. In a frying pan on a medium heat add the oil, garlic, chilli, and lemon peel, and leave to heat through until slightly golden, and then add the lemon juice and season with salt and black pepper. Pour the mixture over the potatoes and mix gently to avoid breaking the potatoes. Serve warm, with barbecued meat or vegetarian protein, or leave to chill for 3 hours.
