Greek Mashed Potatoes: Skordalia

Greek-Mashed-Potatoes-Skordalia

WOW! I’ve just made this skordalia and it came out super delicious! I mashed the potatoes simply with the fork and added all the ingredients listed. I found the addition of oregano a big improvement compared to the recipe I used before!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 pound of potatoes
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • Pink Himalayan sea salt
  • Pinch of oregano
  • Ground pepper
  • Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 lemon, reserve juice
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
