Recipe type: Side
Cuisine: 60+ minutes, Vegan, Gluten Free
Serves: 2
  • 4 medium white potatoes (about 500g)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil/rapeseed oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 6 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  1. Heat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas Mark 6.
  2. Wash the potatoes, then make slices across the top, cutting down to almost the other side. Be careful not to cut all the way through. Each slice should be about 2mm apart.
  3. Once you've done this to all 4 potatoes, put them on a roasting tray, sliced-side facing up.
  4. Drizzle the oil and lemon juice onto the potatoes, making sure some gets into the grooves (you can use a pastry brush for this).
  5. Press the slices of garlic into the potatoes, so you have an even number in each. Follow with the herbs, salt and pepper.
  6. Cook for 60-80 minutes, basting with the oil at least once. If the potatoes start to go too brown, but they're not fully cooked (check with a sharp knife near the base), cover with foil.
Fresh and dry herbs both work well for this recipe.
