- 900 g small white potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
- sea salt
- 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- Flaked sea salt
- fresh or dried herbs of your choice, such as rosemary or thyme
- 1 dash black pepper, freshly ground
- Place the peeled and quartered potatoes in a large bowl and add water until they're covered. Stir in 1 tbsp of sea salt. Let the potatoes soak in water for 30 minutes. Drain them with a colander.
- Preheat the oven to 225ºC/437ºF.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once it's boiling, stir in 1 tbsp of sea salt and the soaked potatoes. Let the potatoes boil for 8 minutes, monitoring the pot constantly.
- Using a colander, drain them and transfer them back to the empty hot large pot. Cover the pot securely and shake 3-4 times.
- Fill a large baking pan with extra-virgin olive oil until you have a thin layer of it. Place the crushed garlic cloves inside it. Place the pan in the oven for 4-5 minutes or until the oil begins to shimmer and you start to see the garlic cloves cooking.
- Take the pan out of the oven and, carefully, place the potatoes in it. Sprinkle some flaked sea salt on top and, with a wooden spatula, toss the potatoes around to cover them all in oil. Add the freshly ground black pepper and the herbs of your choosing. Our favourites are rosemary and thyme.
- Place the pan on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
- Take out and toss the potatoes around again. Bake again for 15 more minutes or until the potatoes are looking golden and crispy.
- Enjoy these super delicious Garlic Roasted Potatoes alongside our Vegan & Gluten-Free Asian Inspired Tofu Scramble for an amazing meal!
- Store any leftovers in a sealed container, in the refrigerator, for up to 4 days.
- To reheat, simply bake them at 180°C/350°F for 5-7 minutes.
