  • rosemary 1 sprig, finely chopped
  • garlic 2 cloves, bashed
  • olive oil 2 tbsp
  • rocket to serve

  • extra-virgin olive oil 2 tbsp
  • lime ½, juiced

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Toss together the potatoes, rosemary, garlic and olive oil in a small roasting tin with some seasoning. Roast for 50 minutes-1 hour or until golden-tinged, the skins are lightly wrinkled and tender when pressed.
