Category: Potatoes, Low Fat, Healthy Recipes

 Ingredients List

  • 500g new potatoes
  • 100g asparagus tips
  • 3tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon; zest and juice of half
  • 2-4 spring onions, trimmed, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 100g petit pois, just cooked
  • 8 quail eggs, hard-boiled (see Tip)
  • 2 handfuls of pea shoots
  • 1 punnet mustard and cress


Add the potatoes to a pan of boiling salted water and simmer for 15-20 mins, until almost tender. Add the asparagus to the pan for 2 mins. Take the spears out and refresh them under cold water. Drain the potatoes and leave them in the colander for 5 mins.

Halve the potatoes as you put them in a bowl, then squash them gently with a fork. Shake the oil, lemon zest and juice in a jar. Pour about half of the dressing over the potatoes, mix in with the spring onion and season well.

Arrange the asparagus on plates. Pile the potato mixture on top. Sprinkle the peas over, then add the egg halves and pea shoots. Scatter mustard and cress around the edge of the plate and drizzle with more dressing.
