Scotty Brand sent us some lovely Kestrel potatoes before Christmas. They are fabulous for using for lots of potato things, boiling, baking or roasting. Mashing is just one of the ways that they can be used really well.
Potatoes are really quite good for us. I read a lot of negativity around root vegetables, and I can never quite understand the reason for it. They are high in folic acid which helps our immune system and our white blood cell production, so for that reason alone, I think they should stay part of a balanced diet to eat well.
With around 93 calories per 100 grams, it is easy to count them into a good meal plan,
I like some plain cooking with potatoes and for this recipe, I kept it very simple indeed.
