New Potatoes with Turmeric, Preserved Lemon, Green Olives & Feta

Nourishing recipes with Pukka Herbs, created for us by chef and food writer The 5 O’clock Apron

As part of our Make Time with Seasalt & Pukka partnership, chef and food writer Claire, from The 5 O’Clock Apron, has created three feel-good recipes for us, using Pukka Herbs. Her first offering is this delicious recipe for seasonal new potatoes, livened up with lots of vibrant colours and flavours. Lovely as a special side dish or as the lunchtime centre piece, served with a green leafy salad.


Serves 4

Cook the potatoes in plenty of well salted boiling water with the turmeric gold for about 20 minutes until tender, drain and put to one side

While the potatoes are cooking, in a frying pan over a moderate heat gently fry the white of the spring onion with the garlic in the oil for about 2 – 3 minutes until softened. Remove from the heat.

In a large bowl mix the cooked potatoes (they should be bright yellow in colour) with the cooked spring onion and garlic, then add the preserved lemon and any liquor to taste, the capers, olives, green of the spring onions, jalapenos and finally the coriander. Mix well before topping with the crumbled feta to serve. Best of all eaten just warm or at room temperature.
