Perfect Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary and Lemon


10-12 medium-large yellow potatoes, peeled
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 yellow onion, largely chopped
1 bulb of garlic, cloves peeled
Red wine vinegar or white vinegar
2-4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 lemon
Salt & Pepper


Parboil the potatoes

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Boil salted water and add peeled potatoes. Parboil for 8-10 minutes.
  3. Drain potatoes in a colander and toss them a bit to rough up the edges. This will help get a nice crispy skin.
  4. In a large baking dish, add a generous amount of olive oil (approx. 3 tbsp) and toss in the potatoes and season well with salt and pepper.
  5. Roast for 30 minutes.

Prepare the seasonings

  1. While the potatoes are roasting, prepare the seasonings.
  2. Add a tbsp of oil to a bowl, strip off leaves of rosemary and toss them in. Add peeled garlic cloves along with a few swigs of vinegar. Zest and juice the lemon into mix and thoroughly combine.

Add seasonings

  1. Remove potatoes from the oven and gently flip them over.
  2. Pour the seasoning over the potatoes and add the chopped onions
  3. Pop the potatoes back in the oven for another 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
