Ingredients

  • 8 large potatoes (about 6-1/2 pounds), peeled and cubed
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon plus 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted

Directions

Place potatoes in a stockpot; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or until tender.
Meanwhile, mince garlic; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt. Mash garlic with flat side of the knife blade, forming a smooth paste. In a small bowl, whisk oil, lemon juice, garlic mixture and remaining salt until blended.
Drain potatoes; return to pan. Mash potatoes, gradually adding oil mixture. Transfer to a serving dish; sprinkle with pine nuts. Yield: 16 servings (3/4 cup each).
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
