Yummy Pesto Mashed Potato2012-06-05
There are so many types of pesto available now; choose basil, sundried tomato, coriander or porcini pesto – depending on the main dish. By simply adding one tablespoon of pesto to boiled potatoes then mashing, it adds a delicious alternative with a hint of colour to the usual mash….and guess what…..the kids just love it too! You could also add some sundried tomatoes and top with a little grated Cheddar and black pepper.
- 4 potatoes (or enough for a side dish for 2 adults and 2 small children)

- 1 tablespoon of pesto
- Place the potatoes into a saucepan with enough water to cover.
- Bring to a boil, and cook until tender; about 10 minutes.
