Prep time

10 mins


  • Garlic Clove: 1 small garlic clove
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: 100ml extra virgin olive oil
  • Parsley: 1 large bunch parsley
  • Basil: 1 large bunch basil
  • White Wine Vinegar: 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • New Potato: 1kg new potatoes, larger potatoes halved


  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, drop in the basil for 30 secs or until wilted, then fish out with a slotted spoon and set aside to cool slightly. Add the potatoes and cook until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, squeeze out the basil over the sink, then put in a blender along with the oil, vinegar, garlic and a good pinch of seasoning. Blitz until you have a vibrant green oil.
  3. Drain and steam-dry the potatoes. Chop the parsley, then tip it and the potatoes into a serving bowl. Season and toss in the basil oil. Will keep for two days.
