Pure’ di patate – mash potatoes (- 40 weeks)


Recipe 83: I have to be fair… this week i didn’t have so much time, not to cook, not to blog but not even to eat uff! So finally i also needed to think about something very easy and quite quick to cook and here is a basic recipe that couldn’t miss on my blog: the pure’ or purea in correct italian or as you say here mash potatoes!

Ingredients: you will just need 2-3 big potatoes, some milk, butter, nutmeg, salt, pepper and of course Parmesan.

Just clean, peal and cut the potatoes. Put them in same boiling water  for around 20 minutes. When ready, drain them and mash them with a fork.

At this point  add some  butter, around 25 gr and some milk but don’t too much otherwise the pure’ will be too liquid. Mix it all adding salt, pepper and a good quantity of nutmeg! If still too consistent you can add some more milk and now taste it! Anymore salt, milk or butter?

The pure’ it’s now ready but don’t forget the last touch… some grated Parmesan, i would say around 20-30 gr. Now serve it and enjoy!

PS: Mamy, questo era proprio immancabile nelle mie ricette… altro che i pure’ insipidi che fanno qui! Ad avercelo un’italiano in cucina che ci mette latte burro e parmigiano! E quando lo facevi tu era festa a casa! Proprio buono e niente a che vedere con le solite patate lesse!
