Sauces and dips part 3 – Skordalia, the anti-vampire dip!

If you have leftover mashed potato, this is a good way to use it, particularly when vampires are about!

Soak the tail end of a loaf of wholemeal bread in water. You want the equivalent of 3 good slices. For a prettier dip, remove the crusts. Sqeeze the water out of the remainder and put in the foodprocessor with 5 cloves garlic and the mashed potatos. You can add a handful of walnuts if you like – up to half a cup.

Once pureed, add a cup of olive oil slowly, through the feeder tube of the processor. Add the juice of half a lemon, taste, season with salt and pepper and serve!

It is great as a beetroot dressing or with a robust burger mix.

If you’re planning on kissing anyone later that day – make sure they eat some too!
