- Potato-mango mash
After several events cooking for my clients, I can, at least today, come back to my very first love, eating !
I am reading a book which I won’t mention the name as it’s a bit boring, but that book is about food of course and the author was talking about pureed watercress. Lunch time, craving for that watercress purée, I realized that we are not in season, but not at all.
Still obsessed (strange as it’s the salad trend at the moment with that heat) I remembered one of my colleague telling me what she cooked for her boyfriend a few weeks ago. A kind of potatoes-mango mash, with coriander, lime…
Potato-mango purée – serves 2
- 2 medium potaoes
- 1 small mango
- 1 quarter of a red or white onion
- Coriander leaves
- Half of a lime or lemon juice
- Salt, pepper, olive oil
- Chilli sauce
Peel and boil the potatoes in salted water. While they are boiling, peel the mango and cut it in big chunks.
When the potatoes are ready, mash them with the mango, add salt, pepper, lemon juice, onion, coriander and olive oil. Et c’est tout ! It’s a summary purée that you can enjoy warm or cold. With a grilled fish it’s just heaven.
