Description

These crispy smashed potatoes are perfect when dunked into creamy mint and feta dip. Smashed potatoes are so easy to make, plus they’re a great side dish to any meat or fish!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 500 grams new potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the mint and feta dip

  • 100 grams feta cheese, crumbled
  • 5 tablespoons natural yoghurt
  • 10 grams mint, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the potatoes for approximately 20 minutes, until they are completely tender.
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees Celcius.
  3. Drain away the water and transfer the potatoes to a baking tray. Toss the potatoes in 2 tablespoons of the oil.
  4. Use a fish slice or potato masher to squash the potatoes until they are around 1cm in thickness. Arrange the potatoes on the baking tray so they are evenly spaced and not touching. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper and the remaining tablespoon of oil. Transfer to the oven for 30 minutes.
  5. To make the mint and feta dip combine the crumbled feta, chopped mint, yoghurt and lemon juice in a bowl. Use a fork to breakdown the feta cheese if you would prefer a smoother sauce. Alternatively, you can blend the dip in a food processor for a completely smooth sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper as required.
  6. The potatoes are done when they are golden brown and crispy around the edges. Serve them alongside a bowl of the feta dip and enjoy!
