Perfect roast potatoes & veg

Find me a better side dish than fluffy and crispy roast potatoes with rosemary and extra virgin olive oil...I dare you!

Add some extra veg in for diversity!

Roast Potatoes and vegetables
plant points


Serves 4-6

For the potatoes

1.5kg (3lb) potatoes 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary 8 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

For the veg

350g brussels sprouts, halved 2 large carrots, sliced 1 red onion, sliced 1 aubergine/eggplant, diced 1 large courgette / zucchini, sliced 2 tsp smoked paprika Pinch of salt


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180C / 360 F

Step 1

Boil the potatoes (floury varieties are best such as maris piper, King Edward or Desiree) until they are soft and fluffy (around 10-15mins)

Step 2

After draining shake them around in the pot to expose the fluffy edges, then drizzle 6 tbsp of the extra virgin olive oil, rosemary sprigs (or dried) and rock salt

Step 3

Put them in the oven for 50 mins at 180 C / 360F

Step 4

While the potatoes are roasting away, in a separate tray, add chopped veg (I like carrots, sprouts, onions, courgette, or whatever I have in the fridge)

Step 5

Drizzle the remaining 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, smoky paprika and rock salt

Step 6

Add the veg into the oven for the final 35 mins.

Perfect for batch cooking at the weekend for lunches throughout the week too!
