Hardcore Hobbit: Golden Roast Potatoes

Sometimes, a side dish requires that extra bit of something special. Instead of approaching these with my usual slice potatoes, season and oven method, I thought I would give another tried and true method a go. In the game Golden Roast Potatoes are made from golden shire taters, fine seasonings, and savoury seasonings. I made mine from the golden fleshed shire taters grown right here in the shire…*cough* I mean on the island.

  • 500 grams golden fleshed potatoes
  • 1 sprig of rosemary, chopped
  • 3 1/2 tbl lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp dried red pepper flakes
  • sea salt
  • ground pepper
  • cooking spray
  1. Scrub your potatoes and cube them.
  2. Boil for 10 minutes and drain.
  3. While the potatoes are boiling combine the remaining ingredients in another bowl. Allow to sit until the potatoes are done cooking.
  4. Pour the mixture over the drained, hot potatoes and stir.
  5. Pour into a baking dish and spray with cooking spray. Bake at 400F for 25-30 minutes. Turn once during baking.

Serves 2 or 4, depending on how much you love potatoes. Each serving for 2 contains 190 calories, .4 grams of fat, and 4.4 grams of fibre. Just cut that in half for servings for four. These are delicious cold too!
