Just a quick post for today about a handy side dish of Roasted New Potatoes. Now normally these can take about 40 minutes to roast, or might involve some par boiling, but I've happened on a way to get it done faster and to fit in alongside your dinner. I hate it when it take longer to cook the potatoes than whatever it is I want to eat with them!
First - have a handy route inside your store cupboard/fridge. Have some oil? Good! Now, what do you like to have your new potatoes with? A bit of garlic? Lemon? Herbs? Bacon? (Again with the bacon I know... I'm obsessed.) Use whatever you have or like.
Add 500g new potatoes to a microwavable bowl with a lid. Add a couple of tablespoons of cold water.
On a high heat cook them for around 5 minutes till they go soft. Then add them to a baking tray of olive oil, and whatever additions you fancy. I've used some chopped garlic and rosemary here - but you could easily try some lemon zest, or something a bit spicier.
Add your potatoes and give it a good shake to mix it all up and coat well.
Cook for around 10-15 minutes in a hot oven (maybe 180C - whatever suits) till they go crispy.
Enjoy! Will put on a much more exciting (and deliciously simple) Pineapple Upside Down cake tomorrow.
