      This nearly pesto mashed potato dish is VERY easy to make and it’s a flavoursome way to serve mashed potatoes. I doubled the garlic, used 1½ tablespoons of oil and ½ tablespoon of lemon juice, and creamy Greek yoghurt instead of cream, but otherwise followed the recipe. I used my mini processor for processing the basil. Next time, I’m going to add some pine nuts and parmesan, so that this truly is pesto mashed potato! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
