Freshly mashed potatoes are blended with garlic, vinegar, olive oil and salt to make this traditional Greek garlic spread. Serve as a side dish or with pitta bread.
Altered ingredient amounts. Substitute breadcrumbs for potatoes for an alternative - 17 May 2011
I was researching the Mediterranean Diet and was looking for some inspiration, this was a very tasty first start. I did feel it was a little bland on it's own and my husband asked what made it different than mashed potatoes? So after boiling 5 small Yukon potatoes in heavily salted water, I pureed in garlic, lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, dried oregano, and plenty of good olive oil. We enjoyed it spread on a crusty baguette slices with a nice dry red wine. I also spread leftovers on toast this morning - delish! - 19 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
nice and simple, thx. just like mother used to make and serve with battered cod filets. i was wondering if we could speed things up by using a good quality mash potatoes mix instead. - 30 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
