Smashed Fingerling Potatoes with Roast Garlic-Basil Oil
This recipe serves:  12

1 cup roasted, peeled garlic cloves
1 cup apple juice
3/4 cup fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
5 pounds Fingerling potatoes, washed
1 cup plain, low-fat yogurt

Cooking Instructions
1. In a large pot, cover the fingerlings with cold water. Bring to a simmer over high heat and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain in a colander.

2. While the potatoes are cooking, puree half of the roasted garlic with the apple juice, basil and parsley in a blender until smooth. Season generously with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil slowly until incorporated. Reserve.

3. Transfer half of the potatoes into a mixing bowl. Mash the potatoes with the remaining garlic using a stationary or hand mixer until smooth. Add the yogurt, whipping to smooth as necessary.

4. Add the remaining potatoes and mash into rustic, large pieces. Season generously with salt and pepper. Drizzle in a little of the basil oil.

5. Transfer to a warm serving dish. Drizzle a few tablespoons of the basil scented olive oil over the surface of the puree. Serve immediately while piping hot.
