This is a recipe from Delia Smith's new vegetarian cook book. It is basically a French variation on mashed potatoes, to which garlic and cheese are added.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place garlic and butter in a pan on lowest heat possible for 30 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes.
  3. With an electric hand whisk on slow, begin to break up the potatoes and add the butter and garlic, some pepper, and a handful of the cheese.
  4. Switch the speed to high, and add the cheese a handful at a time.
  5. Keep going and it will become loose and glossy eventually.
  6. Serve immediately.

Good cheesy comfort food. Quite heavy due to the cheese. I didn't use a whisk but just used a masher.
