SAFFRON AND GARLIC MASH

 

Sumptuous Suppers
by Rose Elliot
Preparation 15 minutes, plus steeping
Cooking 20 minutes
Serves 4



Ingredients

• 2 1/4 lb potatoes, peeled and cut into even-size pieces
• 2/3 cup light cream
• good pinch of saffron threads
• 1/4 cup butter
• 4 garlic cloves, crushed
• salt and pepper, to taste

For the garnish
• 4 garlic cloves
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 tablespoon chopped parsley


Directions
1.
Cover the potato pieces in boiling water and cook for about 20 minutes, or until tender.

2. Meanwhile, put the cream into a small saucepan with the saffron and bring almost to a boil, then remove from the heat, cover and allow to steep.

3. To prepare the garnish, cut the garlic cloves into thin slices. Heat the olive oil in a small pan, add the garlic and fry for a minute or so until the garlic is golden. Remove from the heat and set aside.

4. Drain the potatoes, reserving the water, then mash with the butter, crushed garlic, and saffron-infused cream (no need to remove the saffron threads) to make a smooth, creamy consistency. Add a small quantity of the reserved cooking water if needed. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Spoon the potato into a warmed serving dish, top with the fried pieces of garlic and the oil and some chopped parsley, and serve.
