1 kg potatoes
¾ cup extra virgin olive oil – green fruity
¾ cup milk
1 tsp. salt
Freshly ground pepper
¾ cup grated kefalotyri cheese (hard cheese made from sheep’s milk)
Thyme or favourite herbs
Boil potatoes, peel and mash. Do not use a food processor.
Slowly add olive oil, milk, salt, pepper and cheese and continue puréeing until the mixture is smooth.
Do not use a food processor to do the mixture because this will make a starchy and sticky purée. Use a hand masher.
Variations: Add chopped green olives to serve with chicken or fish.
