Skordalia (Potato Garlic Spread)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by sofie-a-toast

I never would have thought of making a dip out of potatoes, but this Greek spread is delicious and VERY garlicky. I use skordalia as a substitute for hummus. It can be served with almost anything but most traditionally beer battered fish, eggplant or zucchini. My favorite is to use it in a pita sandwich with veggies and meat or falafel (spl?). It is also perfect to bring to a potluck with bread to dip.

Top Review by weekend cooker

This was good.. the kids really enjoyed it, the DS and I enjoyed it too. I used chicken broth with this thats what I had on hand,. I think the vegetable would go better with this giving it a little more flavor. Though we did enjoy this during thanksgiving I will try the vegetable broth and update this. Will try with some beer battered fish too. Thanks for the different ideas. Made for Holiday tag.
