Creamy Lemon Pepper Mashed Potato


5 medium Carisma* potatoes, peeled and chopped in quarters

Big pot of boiling water, enough to cover potatoes

1/4 cup of buttermilk

2 tablespoons of butter (No nonsense substitutes please!)

Enough full cream milk to make mash smooth and creamy

Zest of half a medium lemon

Cracked black pepper

Salt to taste


Boil the potatoes in the water until floury starch gathers on the edge of your pot. Drain the boiling water away. Add the buttermilk, butter, lemon zest, pepper and salt to taste. Mash, stir, mash. Add dribbles of milk. Mash until your potato looks like cream. Mmmm. Delicious.



* Carisma is a newly released low carb potato stocked in Coles supermarkets in Australia, but any floury potato would work in this recipe.
