“I took this recipe from a Vegan Tastes of Greece for a recipe called skordalia which seemed like a dip. I wanted this flavour without dip, so I changed it a bit; hence skordy. I listened to Penulum while making Greek treats which was rather funky do try!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to gas mark 8 (hot hot hot). Cut your potatoes into 1 inch chunks. (I like wedgey bits that are small). Toss in a bowl the potatoes in the oil with the rosemary and lemon juice and lemon zest and garlic.
  2. Chuck the lot onto a baking tray not forgetting to scrape herbs and oil from the bowl. Bake for twenty minutes while listening to funky tunes and enjoying the yumminess that is to come.
  3. Check that potatoes are firm yet "give" with a fork; squish them a little bit with a fork and put back in oven for another 10 minutes on gas mark 3.
  4. Listen to more tunes. Serve with a squirt of fresh lemon and with Greek or curry or vegan stuff or just eat out of pan. I suggest tatskiki (vegan or not).
  5. You can pulverize this into a dip using more olive oil and lemon juice or eat it chunky. I like chunks.
  6. I reckon this would make an ace potato salad base. I absolutely hate mayonnaise, so there's no chance of me making that ever! However you're welcome to try--I'll let you.
