1 avocado, 4 Maris Piper potatoes, 50g cheddar, black pepper
Serves: 4 Preparation: 30 minutes
Mashed potato is without a doubt my favourite food. It is the ultimate in comfort and is wonderfully versatile. Much like everything goes with toast, in my humble opinion you can add pretty much anything to mashed potato from citrus to cheese to spices to vegetables and it will still be nothing short of divine. The delicate, cool flavour of avocado when mixed with the tang of cheddar is absolutely delicious and has the creamiest texture! For my vegan readers, I can now confirm that mashed potato without butter is possible. Get your avocado onnnnn. I insist on the cheddar though... tee hee.
1) Peel and cut the potatoes, then boil in hot salted water for 20 minutes and strain away the water.
2) Halve the avocados and scoop the fruit from the shell, discarding the stone. Pulse in the blender until smooth and creamy, then add the potato and pulse again to combine.
3) Stir through the cheddar and black pepper and serve hot.
