Summer Spuds with Feta and Garden Herbs

We adore spuds as a nation! There are so many ways of enjoying them- mashed, boiled, baked, fried, but when hot weather calls around (yay!) a big ol pile of Mash just doesn’t work.
Beautiful baby new potatoes are perfect for the summer days. They are full of taste, quick to cook and there are so many ways of jazzing them up.
This is a delicious recipe for a simple side dish that will go perfectly with some tasty grilled meats or vegetables.

Serves 4 as a side

Summer Spuds!

Summer Spuds!

1.5kg Baby potatoes
40g real Butter
1 small Shallot (finely diced)
2 tbsp chopped Chives
1 tsp chopped Dill
1 tbsp chopped Parsley
Juice of ¼ of a lemon and zest of 1
Dash of Tabasco
100g Feta (crumbled)
Sea salt and cracked Black pepper

Boil potatoes until cooked through but still firm- You don’t want them starting to fall apart.
Strain, remove from pot and set aside, keeping them warm.
Heat the pan over a medium temp, add butter and shallot and sauté for 1 minute.
Add the potatoes back in, add the herbs, lemon juice and rind, Tabasco and seasoning.
Toss until coated well then add the feta cheese. Toss again, and serve!
