Cook time: 45 Mins minutes

Servings: 6 people


1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Use the end of a small, sharp knife to carefully carve faces into the potatoes: dig the point of the knife 1cm into the potato and carve out eyes, noses and mouths.

2. Place the potatoes on a baking tray, drizzle with the oil and toss to coat. Make sure all the faces are facing upwards, then roast for 40-45 mins until golden and crispy.

3. Meanwhile, mash the avocado in a bowl with a fork. Stir in the soured cream, garlic and some seasoning. Add the lemon juice and whisk to combine. Top with the chives, then serve with the potatoes for dipping.
