Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 500-700gm potatoes (washed and peeled and cut into small chunks)

  • 1/4 cup olive oil (approx) 

  • 1 tsp salt 

  • 2 sprigs rosemary 


Method

  2. Fill a pan with water and boil. Place the potatoes in the boiling water for turn down to simmer for approx 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are slightly cooked. Drain the water out of the pan and place the potatoes in a colander to ensure all water has been drained out.

  3. Place potatoes back into the pan and add the olive oil along with the salt. Mix the potatoes around with the olive oil quite heavy handed so the outside of the potatoes are covered in oil and salt.
