- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cooking Time: 2 hours 30 minutes
- Serves 4
Serves 6 and can be stored covered in refrigerator or frozen.
- 1x tablespoon olive oil
- 2x Medium (300g) onions, chopped.
- 5x Medium (1kg) potatoes, peeled and chopped.
- 1.5 litres chicken stock
- 300ml cream
Heat oil in pan, add onion, cook stirring until brownish and soft. Add potatoes and stock to a big pot and simmer uncovered for around 20 minutes. Potatoes should now be soft and can be mashed with a “masher” utensil (haha) or blend or process mixture until you have a smooth texture. Add everything now to the pot simmering, then add the cream stirring until heated through.
Serve. Decorate. Enjoy.
ps. Sorry for the dodgy camera picture, I will be sure to use my digital instead of the phone next time :)

What’s your favourite dinner dinner to make? I’m living alone for the next 3 weeks and I’m on a cooking feast. Hit me up with your favourite food and recipe and I’ll attempt to make it, eat it and of course, blog it :)
Preferred dishes that feed 1-3 people would be best, and something that doesn’t need 101 ingredients.
Please post in the comments as soon as possible to prevent me from going hungry at dinner time… :P
PS. I may be a little slow with replying to comments over the next 3 weeks, I’ll catch up when I get back.
Lately the family have been cooking up lots of Rocky Road and i love it! Once there set in the fridge the red rasberries stick to your teeth :)
500 g chocolate, melted
200 g marshmallows, chopped
¼ cup dessicated coconut
2 x 55 g bars Turkish Delight, chopped
½ cup peanuts, chopped
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
- Pour mixture into a lined slice tin and refrigerate until set.
- Use a warm knife to cut the slice into small squares.
PS: The Turkish Delight bars can be substituted for rasberries (what i used) or red jubes.
