ingredients

directions

  • Pound garlic with 1/2 teaspoon salt in a mortar until smooth.
  • Add mashed potatoes and continue to pound and stir with pestle.
  • Soak bread (crusts removed)in cold water and squeeze dry.
  • Add to potatoes and garlic, pounding and stirring until smooth.
  • Gradually add olive oil, lemon juice and vinegar, stirring vigorously.
  • When smooth and light, add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Chill in a covered bowl before using.
  • Variation: Replace bread with 1/2 cup ground almonds or walnuts, or use 1 1/2 cups of ground almonds or walnuts instead of the potatoes and bread.
  • Blender method: Put all ingredients in a blender and blend at moderate speed until ingredients are pulverised. Sure beats all that pounding!
  • Increase speed for a few seconds until light and smooth. Do not blend for too long for the mixture heats and the oil separates.
