2 potatoes, Russet or Idaho type, or Yukon Gold (yellow) 500 g
4 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 lemon
3 tbsp olive oil 45 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A food mill or a potato ricer will be very useful to purée the potatoes. A food processor cannot give the proper texture.


  1. Prepare the potatoes, leaving the skin on. Boil or steam until very tender, about 20-25 min. Drain well and peel.
  2. Pass the potatoes through a food mill, then put the purée back into the pot that was used to cook the potatoes. Add the lemon juice and olive oil, then add salt and pepper to taste. Blend well using a spatula.
  3. Reheat and serve warm.


The consistency of this purée is much different from the milk-based purée. If you find it too dense, just add some warm water.
