Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Dutch yellow baby potatoes (or any small potato)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil (or cooking spray)
  • 2 cups fresh parsley plus more for garnish
  • 2 scallions, roughly chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 avocado, peel and pit removed
  • salt/pepper to taste.

Instructions

  1. Cover the potatoes in cool water in a medium saucepan. Bring the water to a boil and cook the potatoes for 20 minutes or until fork tender.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  3. Drain the potatoes, place on a lightly sprayed baking sheet and smash down to flatten, using either a potato masher or back of a wooden spoon.
  4. Spritz a little oil or cooking spray over the potatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
  6. While the potatoes are cooking, make the sauce.
  7. Place the parsley, scallions, 4 cloves of garlic, olive oil, and lime juice in a food processor or high powered blender until finely chopped.
  8. Add in the avocado and a generous pinch of salt and pepper and blend until just combined.
  9. After the potatoes come out of the oven, drizzle with sauce and garnish with parsley and minced scallions.
