Mediterranean Roast Potato Recipe

This roast potato recipe is bursting with loads of flavours of the Mediterranean, and because we use olive oil and not saturated fat, and the potato skins stay on, it's a great healthy option. They are quick and easy to make and absolutely delicious, a lot less fiddly than standard roasties. 
You can also make them ahead of time, and just blast them in a hot oven for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

Great Mediterranaen Roasties

  1. Wash the potatoes really well being careful to remove all of the soil.
  2. Chop each potato into approximately 1-1/2 inch square chunks (approx 4 cm square). Do not worry if you get some variation in shapes, you definately will.
  3. Wash the potatoes again to remove any starch, and dry well.
  4. Put them into a large bowl and throw in the rest or the ingredients.
  5. Mix everything together till the potatoes are well coated with the mixture.
  6. Pile them on to a large sturdy roasting tin. Give the tin a good shake so that the oil and the potatoes are evenly spread all over the tray. Add a little more olive oil if necessary and make sure that there is a small gap around each potato for even roasting.
  7. Put into a pre heated hot oven 230 deg C / 450 deg F. After 5 minutes give the tray a shake to stop the potatoes from sticking and cook for a further for 15 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and turn each potato over.
  9. Put back into the oven for a further 10 minutes.
  10. If you want to make them ahead of time....put them aside now, and then before serving put them back into the hot oven for 10 minutes to crisp them up.
  11. For eating straight away just turn the temperature down to 190º C /375º F and continue roasting for a further 5/10 minutes until they are a lovely golden brown.
  12. Pile into a serving dish and eat immediately.
