Here at uni, I live with two friends and I’m the only one of us three that likes potatoes. I threw this together one evening when I was looking for something to eat and was pleasantly surprised by how tasty it turned out. Unfortunately, I had put in too much chilli powder the first time I made it so I had to douse them in ketchup and mayo in order to be able to eat them. No fear, I adjusted the amount of chilli in the recipe below.
- Potatoes (enough to feed as many people as you need to feed)
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder/red pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon basil
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
I used the above measurements to make about 7 baby yukon potatoes (two servings) so adjust accordingly.
Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet/dish with foil. Give your potatoes a good scrubbing and cut them into wedges. In a large bowl, add the oil and potatoes. Toss to coat them well. Add all spices and toss again to coat evenly. Spread the potatoes in a single layer on an oven sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning half way through. That was easy!
