Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Being Irish, I don’t really think anything counts as a meal unless potatoes are somehow involved…Serves 4 as a side


  • 750g potatoes
  • 2 lemons
  • olive oil
  • 2 crushed cloves of garlic
  • Several sprigs of rosemary (optional)
  • 1 tsp turmeric (optional)


  • Parboil the potatoes for around 10 minutes (less if using small potatoes) until they are starting to soften, but not completely cooked.
  • Grate the zest of one lemon, and juice both the lemons.
  • Once they have cooled, cut the potatoes into wedges.
  • Place in a roasting pan and toss in olive oil and garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice. Add a tablespoon of water.
  • Rip up the rosemary with your hands and add to the potatoes.
  • Add the turmeric (this is only to give the potatoes a nice yellow colour, it doesn’t add any flavour).
  • Roast in an oven at 200 degrees celsius, for approximately 45 minutes, or until nicely crisped and golden.
