Leek and potato + lemon and sage

  • Peel and cube potatoes. Boil, drain, and mash with butter/cream if desired.
  • Slice leeks and cook slowly in butter til melty.
  • Combine the two with hot stock then whiz minimally with about two sage leaves per person and a generous squeeze of lemon
  • Season as you go!

What did it taste like? Quite simply, delish!

Tip: Check the potatoes you buy are good for mash and don't over-process them with the blender as they can go all gluey. Don't whiz at all if you prefer! Also, beware of sage (personally, I find it a bit scary (I have trapped the rest in the freezer and am keeping a close eye)); add a little at a time.
