Method

  1. Cut the potatoes into cubes but keep the skin on. Cook in a pan of simmering salted water until just tender, about 10-15 minutes, and then drain. Add back to the pan with the parsley and some seasoning and crush lightly with a masher or the back of a fork.
  2. Add a splash of white wine vinegar and a slug of olive oil and gently mix in. Add more of each if it needs it.

Effortless, quick and tasty! I found it quite dry though. I don't know if didn't add enough oil or something, but you might want to pair this with a sauce or juicy dish.

Tips: go crazy on the parsley (it looks nice too) but be careful with the vinegar, 1 tablespoon for the dish should be more than enough. For extra subtle flavour, you can cook the potatoes in vegetable stock instead of plain salted water.
