Potatoes in Green Coriander Mint Sauce

23 April 2020 By

This is a simple, delicious potato dish. The base of this dish is my green coriander sauce which pairs exceedingly well with fresh English mint.

As potatoes are excellent flavour absorbers, it makes an extremely delicious pairing when combined in this thick minty green sauce. I’ve added a few more spices to enhance the base flavours and this recipe will work with other vegetables like cauliflower, zucchini or roasted then roughly mashed eggplant.

You can also turn this base green sauce into more of a gravy style by adding yoghurt or coconut cream especially if you decide to use it with proteins such as chicken, fish or prawns.
