How to make roasted new potatoes with garlic & herbs

0
Your rating: None
New potatoes are roasted with garlic and fresh herbs for a delicious side dish. Soaking the potato chunks in cold water before roasting removes some of the starch and helps keep them from sticking to the roasting tin.
What you'll need: 
450g new potatoes
2-1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
6 fresh sage leaves, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
Roasting tin
1: 
Preheat oven to 200C, gas mark 6. Scrub potatoes and cut into 2.5 cm pieces. Place in a bowl and cover with cold water. Set aside for 10 minutes.
2: 
Drain potatoes but do not blot dry. Place them in a roasting tin large enough to hold them in a single layer. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil and toss to coat evenly. Roast, turning once, for 30 minutes.
3: 
Crush garlic in a mortar and pestle with salt until reduced to a paste. Combine garlic paste, minced herbs and remaining 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a small bowl.
4: 
Remove potatoes from oven and drizzle with garlic mixture. Toss gently to distribute the seasonings. Continue roasting, turning the potatoes occasionally, until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.
Conclusion: 
Makes two generous servings.
Tips: 
Thyme and oregano can be used in place of sage and rosemary.
