Recipe: Wild Garlic Roasted New Potatoes
Another scrumptious recipe using the lovely british seasonal ingredient that is wild garlic! A very tasy little side dish i've got here- not many ingredients, it just really lets the flavour of the wild garlic and good english new potatoes shine through. It is important to use small potatoes, and to bunch them all together (although not completely piling them up!) in the roasting pan, otherwise they will not cook together thoroughly and you'll end up with crunchy potatoes. Next time I make this, if i have a chance to go and pick some more wild garlic before their season is over, i'm going to make quadruple what I make here- it is just too good!
Wild Garlicky Roasted New Potatoes (serves 2 as a side dish) If you pick the wild garlic yourself, 62p per serving
500g baby new potatoes, quartered
10 wild garlic leaves
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp sugar
Plenty of salt and pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 180C. In a food processor blend the wild garlic, herbs, olive oil and sugar until smooth. In a large bowl mix together the potatoes and garlicky oil, and add plenty of salt and pepper, making sure the potatoes are all nice and coated.
2. Pour onto a tray and bunch them up together (don’t spread them out). Roast in the oven for 50 minutes. Remove and serve!
