  1. Put the baby potatoes in a lidded saucepan with the distilled white vinegar and top up with water to cover the potatoes by about 1cm. Season well with salt, then bring to the boil, cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 15-20 mins or until tender. Drain and steam-dry for 2 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Arrange the potatoes in an even layer on a baking tray, then use a potato masher to crush the potatoes. Drizzle over the olive oil and onion granules, if you like, then stir gently to coat. Roast for 20 mins, then carefully flip the potatoes, scatter over the unpeeled cloves from the garlic bulb and roast for a further 15-20 mins, until the potatoes are deeply golden and the garlic cloves are soft.
  3. Squeeze half the garlic cloves from their skins, then mash with the fresh herbs and yogurt. Season the potatoes, garnish with extra basil leaves and serve with the remaining whole garlic cloves and the dip.
