Lemon Roasted Potatoes

  • Prep Time 10min
  • Cook Time 23min

These yummy scrummy lemon-roasted potatoes are a recipe that’s the perfect accompaniment for roasted or grilled meats – or indeed any main dish at all! Little potatoes are halved and par-boiled then tossed in a baking dish with a mixture of sunny Flora Original and lemon juice. Then just roast in an oven that’s already nice and hot – they won’t even take half an hour to finish up.        

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C, 200°C fan, gas mark 7.
  2. Place potatoes in a medium saucepan.
  3. Add cold water, cover and bring to the boil.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly fork-tender, about 3 minutes.
  5. Potatoes should still be quite hard, or they will go mushy when you roast them.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk Flora Original with lemon juice.
  7. As soon as potatoes are cooked, drain them well.
  8. Turn potatoes into a baking dish just large enough to hold them.
  9. Toss with lemon juice mixture and bake in preheated oven, turning them occasionally until golden and cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  10. Sprinkle with lemon zest, herbs or green onions and season with a little salt and pepper to taste.
