Roast Garlic and Lemon New Potatoes

by Fay Ripley from Fay’s Family Food

Liven up your new potatoes with this tasty, show-stealing side. Served with roast garlic and zesty lemon, these potatoes go well alongside chicken, fish and roasts.

From the book


I find new potatoes a little dull and sometimes you just need to mix things up a bit, or life gets rather tedious. A squeeze of something sharp and a quick roasting can do wonders for your spuds. Try it on your partner if things need a shake-up.

750g baby new potatoes, skin on
4 tbsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 lemon, zest and juice


Pre-heat the oven to 200°C (fan), 220°C, gas mark 7.

Throw the washed potatoes into a roasting tray.

Drizzle half the oil over the potatoes and toss with a bit of seasoning. Roast for
45–50 minutes, giving them a shake if you remember. Once soft, remove.

Mix the garlic with the remaining oil, lemon zest and juice. Spoon this dressing
through the hot potatoes and serve immediately.
