Crushed Anya Potatoes With Peas And Herbs

Anya Potatoes

I believe the only place you can buy Anya potatoes is from Sainsbury’s. The Anya potato has a slightly nutty flavour and a firm texture. Great plain boiled with a little bit of butter and seasoning, also good to serve in salads. We always cook more than we need for any single serving and keep them in the fridge. Once cold the Anya potato is great for frying in a knob of butter and served with a full breakfast. Developed by Mr Bartlett

These potatoes are a little expensive at £1.50 but are great for an occasional treat. They are my eldest daughters favourite potatoes ever so even better if you can pick them up when reduced. So I had nearly half a packet of the Anya potatoes left and I wanted to do something a little different.
