Roasted new potatoes with lemon & herbs
Try this no-fuss side as an alternative to traditional roasties. They don’t require much effort – simply pan-fry, shaking a few times, then roast
- Serves: 6 persons
- 25g butter
- 1tbsp vegetable oil
- 750g new potatoes
- 1lemon, zested
- 1tbsp thyme leaves
- small handful of oregano sprigs, leaves picked and roughly chopped
Step 1Heat the butter and oil in a heavy-based ovenproof saucepan over a medium heat, then add the whole new potatoes. Cover and cook for 15 mins, shaking the pan every few minutes to ensure the potatoes cook evenly. When ready, the potatoes should have just started to soften and will be well-browned.
Step 2Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Scatter the lemon zest and herbs over the potatoes, season, cover again and shake to combine. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15-20 mins until cooked through and tender.
