Easy Roasted Potatoes

This is one of the easiest roasted potatoes you can find in the market, hahaha well if I do say so myself. Roasted potatoes can be made with just a few ingredients such as salt and oil (goose fat). 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.

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