Smashed New Potatoes

Smashed New Potatoes

Serves 8

A hit of lemon, garlic, and dulse (a mineral-rich red seaweed) gives chunky mashed new potatoes just enough seasoning for a side that won’t overpower the flavors of a main dish.
  • 3 lb. small new potatoes, scrubbed
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled, divided
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. dulse flakes, plus more for garnish
  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnish
  • 3 Tbs. lemon juice

1. Place potatoes, 2 cloves garlic, and salt in large pot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook 25 to 30 minutes, or until potatoes are very tender. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain. Discard garlic, and return potatoes to pot.

2. Press remaining clove garlic through garlic press, and warm with oil in small saucepan over medium heat until garlic begins to sizzle, then add dulse, and cook 1 minute more. Remove from heat, whisk in parsley, lemon juice, and 2/3 cup reserved cooking water; pour mixture over potatoes. Smash potatoes into rough mash, adding more cooking water to achieve desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and garnish with extra dulse and parsley.

I grew up with this dish, minus the pulse, and make it all the time, it's an Italian potato salad I grew up with. I also do it with Green strings or 3 bean salad, that dressing is a classic main stay for many salad type dishes. Many of the dishes I grew up with in my Italian/Arabic household are vegan, or can easily be adapted, as I'm sure so many ethnic dishes are. I do it all the time, just leave out the meat and meat by products. They are usually more scrumptious too.
