  • 4 medium-sized Purple Heart potatoes
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chives for garnish


Preheat your oven to 200°C

Cut the top off the garlic head to expose the cloves. Place it on a sheet of foil, drizzle with olive oil, and wrap it tightly. Roast in the oven for about 30-40 minutes, or until the cloves are soft and golden.

While the garlic is roasting, peel and chop the Purple Heart potatoes into chunks. Boil them until they are fork-tender.

Once the garlic is roasted, squeeze the softened cloves into a bowl.

Mash the boiled Purple Heart potatoes and mix in the roasted garlic paste. Add olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste. For extra creaminess, a splash of organic almond milk works wonders!

Give it a good mix until you achieve your desired consistency.
