Wild Garlic Mash


Prep time: 
10 minutes
Cooking time: 
30 minutes


A simple way to enjoy some of your wild garlic in a comforting side dish of mash. 


  • 1.5kg floury potatoes, such as maris piper, cut into chunks
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 50g wild garlic leaves, sliced
  • Generous splash of double cream
  • Grating of nutmeg


  1. Put the potatoes in a pan of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes until very tender, then drain and return to the pan briefly over a low heat to dry.
  2. Melt the butter in a small pan and fry the wild garlic for 30 seconds. Mash the potatoes with the cream, nutmeg and most of the garlicky butter. Stir through the fried wild garlic and the rest of the butter. Taste, season and serve.
