- Cook time: 45 minutes
- 4 large Patasol potatoes
- 4 tbsp. (60 ml) of butter
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) of milk
- 1 cup (250 ml) of peas
- 2 French shallots, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 small jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp. (15 ml) of fresh ginger, finely chopped
- 1 tsp. (5 ml) of cumin seeds, toasted and crushed

- 1/4 cup (60 ml) of fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) of fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
- Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
- 3/4 cup (180 ml) of Ancêtre cheese, cut into small pieces
Preheat the oven to 450ºF (230ºC). Wash Patasol potatoes thoroughly and boil them in salted water for 20 minutes. Strain potatoes and cut in half lengthwise. Remove skins while leaving a 1/4 inch of potato on the skin, and set aside in a bowl.
Let the skins dry thoroughly, then coat in melted butter. Bake in the oven until crispy (flip once). Set aside.
While the skins are baking, mash the Patasol potatoes with milk and butter. Set aside.
In a skillet, cook leeks in a little butter until golden. Add the garlic, jalapeño pepper, peas, spices and herbs. Add salt and pepper.
Add the pea mixture to the mashed Patasol potatoes. Season to taste. Once the skins are ready, carefully pour on the garnish. Put a small amount of Ancêtre cheese on the Patasol potatoes. Return to oven for five minutes until the cheese is melted and the dish is hot.
