- 1kg new potatoes
- 125ml olive oil
Scrub the potatoes clean, but don’t peel them as so much of the flavour is in the skins.
Heat the oven to 210C. Cover the potatoes with cold water in a large pan, bring to the boil and then simmer for 6 mins. Drain the potatoes and transfer to a roasting tray. Toss in the olive oil, sprinkle liberally with salt, and roast for 30 mins turning them occasionally. The potatoes should be meltingly tender inside, crisp on the outside.
Serve with more salt and black pepper. Great hot or just at room temperature.
