Roasted new potatoes

Angela Clutton

A seasonal take on the Sunday roast essential

Recipe Meta


5 mins


40 mins






  • 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.
