Dried Rosemary
Dried Thyme
Black Pepper
Salt
  1. Pre heat oven at highest heat. (About 250C)
  2. Peel and wash potatoes.

  4. Add 1 tablespoon of oil into baking dish. And put into your oven to heat for about 5 minutes.
  5. Take out the dish, add 2 teaspoons of rosemary, 2 teaspoons of thyme and a good pinch of salt before adding potatoes to the dish.

  8. Serve with your meal and enjoy!

Notes

  • Depending on the size you cut the potatoes, the cooking time will vary. If you have cut them thick, cook for longer. If you have cut them thin, cook them significantly shorter. Cooking time can vary from 20-35 minutes.
  • Goes great with a roast dinner and is a much healthier option than regular potatoes.
  • You can also cook with bashed garlic cloves and onions for a different taste.
