Sometimes when I’m having a dinner party with my young friends, I like to present a dish that’s full of hipstery-Sriracha goodness. This recipe for mayonnaise-potato thing with burnt vegetables is sure to be a hit in such a situation:
“Weird Mayonnaise-Potato Thing With Burnt Vegetables”
Serves 2-8, depending on how gluttonous guests are.
1/2 C of potatoes
1/4 C of expensive Whole Foods mayonnaise that’s exactly the same as Hellman’s
2 C of Shishito peppers
1 Stalk of some sort of inedible leaf or flower
1 Shit-ton of garlic
1 Assortment of random Indian spices you will never use again
8 C of Sriracha sauce
1 C of potatoes
Heat oil in pan over high heat. Add spices, peppers, and garlic. Cook for 3 hours.
While the vegetables are cooking, mash potato and mayonnaise together in a bowl.
After 3 hours, add Sriricha to the vegetables, making sure to use enough to cover the flavor of the other spices you used.
Place potato-mayonnaise thing on plate, then place blackened vegetables on top. Garnish with inedible stalk. Let dish cool for 3 hours, then serve.
