white potato and hard boiled eggs in a bowl

Potato and Egg Mayo Salad

Potatoes – really? Yes I know - our founding principles are no sugars, grains or harmful fats but you can probably tell from our recipes that we champion real food recipes low in carbohydrates and even Keto and paleo recipes too. So why are we now adding in white potato?

Well, there has been a lot of talk of late around resistant starches especially in cooked and cooled potato. You must cook and then cool the potato to ensure the starches are resistant. Do not reheat the potato once cooled and eat them cold.

Resistance starch can help with gut health by feeding the good bacteria in the colon as well as not causing spikes in blood glucose or insulin levels too. We recommend reading more about resistance starch from both Chris Kresser here and Dr Mark Hyman here.

Serves 4-8

What You Need:

  • 4 medium size white potatoes, preferably organic, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 eggs, preferably free range  
  • 100g Hunter and Gather mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Himalayan salt and pepper to taste 
  • Parsley to garnish

What You Do:

  1. Boil potatoes until they are cooked through and still able to hold their shape which takes approximately 15-20 minutes. 
  2. Allow potatoes to cool and put in the fridge overnight
  3. Hard boil the eggs and chop them up once cooled 
  4. Mix the mayonnaise and the water together to thin the dressing out a bit for better potato  coverage
  5. Gently combine the potatoes, chopped eggs and mayonnaise mixture together
  6. season with salt and pepper and add chopped parsley as garnish 
  7. Serve and enjoy
