SMASHED LEMON HERB POTATOES

These are the perfect potatoes for a Sunday feast or a rainy day! They have the fresh flavours of lemon, thyme and rosemary. Smashing the potatoes helps them get a nice crunch in the oven! We hope you love them as much as we did.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 45 minutes

Serves: 3-4 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 bag of small yellow potatoes
  • The juice from half a lemon
  • 3 tbsp of avocado oil
  • A generous pinch of salt
  • A generous pinch of pepper
  • 2 tbsp of fresh thyme (diced)
  • 2 tbsp of fresh rosemary (diced)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (diced)
  • 1/2 tsp of paprika

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Boil a large pot of water and add your potatoes.
  2. While you wait, in a large mixing bowl combine all other ingredients. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prep a large flat baking tray.
  3. Boil your potatoes until you see the skin begin to peel off sections of your potatoes. This is a good indicator that your potatoes are getting soft!
  4. Strain your potatoes and add them into the large mixing bowl. Toss until potatoes are totally coated in your herb, oil and lemon mixture.
  5. Pour your potatoes into your flat baking tray and use a wooden spatula to individually flatten each potato.
  6. Bake your potatoes for roughly 35-40 minutes or until potatoes begin to show a beautiful golden brown colour.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Give them an extra pinch of salt and pepper and enjoy!
