This is one of the easiest you can find in the market, hahaha  well if I do say so myself. Roasted potatoes can be made with just few ingredients such as salt and oil (goose fat) and you can make it super yum and excess calorie free by making it my active kitchen way, less oil, herbs and of course love. If you are wondering why I keep hammering about love, well love is the only thing that can make your kitchen journey stress free and worthwhile.

Back to my (herby) roasted potatoes, it can be peeled or unpeeled, I love both  but when I am pressed with time I have it skin-on (unpeeled) . It takes about an hour to cook but your oven does most of the hard job for you. Whack it in the oven, set the timer, get yourself a cup of tea and put your feet up.
