Here comes the new way to roast potatoes! Keep reading to find out what makes this potato recipe the BEST recipe for roast potatoes ever. Hint: it has a secret ingredient – lemon.
Hands up if you like roast potatoes. Warm, golden, crispy, delicious! Do I need to say any more? But wait, it is more. These potatoes have a secret step in cooking them. They are soaked in a delicious mix of chicken stock (you can use vegetable stock as well), spices and lemon juice. Because of this, you don’t need to use any butter to make them moist, which will reduce your calorie intake, in case you do care) and they will taste absolutely amazing!
I like to use baby potatoes to roast, as they cook faster and have a sweeter taste. Baby potatoes also have thinner skin and don’t have to be peeled. Time saver!
This recipe is absolutely fool proof. You mix all the ingredients, pour it in a large baking dish, add potatoes and bake them until the liquid is absorbed and potatoes are nice and golden. It is really that simple.
