Ingredients

 

Instructions

  1. Blanch potatoes with 4 cloves garlic in boiling water, until fork-tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Strain, reserving ½ cup of the warm potato water.
  3. Mash or put through a potato ricer. ( Do NOT puree in food processor)
  4. Place in a bowl and using a fork stir in olive oil, one tablespoon at a time. Add 1 clove finely minced garlic, salt, pepper, lemon zest, lemon juice and hot water, one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency.
  5. To serve, create a circular ring or well with the back of a spoon, and drizzle olive oil in the well, sprinkle with parsley and more zest.
  6. Serve warm or chilled with toasty pita bread, veggies or naan bread.

Notes

As the skordalia cools, it will become thicker in consistency.

Sometimes finely crushed nuts are added to skordalia, like almonds, walnuts, pinenuts. If using, make sure to toast first.

Feel free to use whole roasted garlic ( just mash with potatoes!)
