Herb-roasted new potatoes

Time: 30 mins

Servings: 2

These are an excellent substitute for frozen oven chips. The recipe also works with small old potatoes, although they might need a bit longer to cook.

  • 500g / 1 lb new potatoes
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano), or 2 tsp dried
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC / 425ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper.
  3. Chop the potatoes lengthwise into 6 to 8 wedges and add them to the herb mixture in the bowl. Toss thoroughly to coat each piece of potato in oil. Stir in the parmesan cheese.
  4. Spread the potato wedges on a nonstick baking sheet (or a baking sheet lined with non-stick paper) and bake for 20 minutes, until they are tender and golden.
