These roast potatoes are perfectly crisp, while still fluffy on the inside with a lovely flavour of garlic, a perfect side dish to any main meal. The key is to parboil these first, then you can lightly rough up the edges of the potatoes with a metal sieve which means the get super crisp. These can also be cooked in an actifry, but I still recommend doing the parboiling first. I have tried without and you just don’t get the same result.

Garlic and Herb Roast Potatoes
 
Serves 4
Author:
Ingredients
  • 800g (28oz) of white potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • handful of fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • sea salt
  • spray oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 220c or 425(gas mark 7)
  2. Place potatoes in a saucepan of boiling hot water and parboil for 8-10 mins. Don't let these get too soft, you just want them to soften slightly on the edges.
  3. Drain water, add half the potatoes to a metal sieve and carefully shake, so it lightly roughs up the potatoes on the edges. Add to a large bowl and repeat with the other half.
  4. Add the garlic and parsley to the potatoes with a couple of sprays of oil and toss to coat evenly.
  5. Line a large baking tray with some parchment paper and spread the potatoes out evenly.
  6. Place in the oven and roast until golden all over (approx 40 mins, turning over half way and giving another spray of oil if needed.
  7. Season well with sea salt.

  8. If cooking these in an actifry, I recommend omitting the parsley until the last few mins, as it can tend to burn in the actifry if cooked for too long.
