Day 13 of the month of Ramadan  
Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes

3-4 red-skinned potatoes, washed well and quartered
Extra-virgin olive oil
Garlic salt, optional
  1. In a medium heavy-bottomed sauce pan, place the potatoes and pour water covering the potatoes only half way.  Sprinkle kosher salt on the water/potatoes and move around so the salt mixes well with the water.  Cover and boil at medium-high heat.
  2. After 8-10 minutes have passed, lower the heat to medium.  Wait about 5-8 minutes more and check the potatoes, they should be fork tender by now.  If not, just leave them a few extra minutes.  I turn off the heat and leave them there for a few minutes so they finish well and cool off a bit so I can handle them.
  3. I take them out of the saucepan, place in the plate I will be eating and mash them with a fork.  Drizzle olive-oil on top of them and keep mashing until they’re sort-of smooth and chucky at the same time.  I sometimes sprinkle a bit of garlic salt on top for extra flavor. Taken from
