Potatoes with Vegetable Sauce
(Patate alla Crema Dell'Orto)
 
 
Ingredients:

1 and 1/2 lbs (675 grams) potatoes
1 carrot, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
4 fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 oz (50 grams) butter
5 tablespoons dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon plain flour
1 fresh flat-leaf parsley sprig, chopped
Salt and pepper 

Directions:

Cook the whole, unpeeled potatoes in plenty of salted water for about 30-40 minutes.

Melt 1 and 1/2 oz (40 grams) of the butter in a pan.
 
Add the carrot, celery and shallot.
 
Cook over a high heat, stirring frequently, until browned.

Add the wine and cook until it has evaporated.

Season with salt and pepper.
 
Lower the heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture is creamy.

Mix the remaining butter with the flour to a paste.
 
Stir into the mixture and simmer for another few minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley and basil.

Drain, peel and thinly slice the potatoes.
 
Arrange the slices on a warm serving dish.
