Preparation time

Cook time

1 hr

Total time



  • sides-light-meals-and-salads
  • vegetable-side-dishes




  • 1kg/2.2 lbs good roasting potatoes (eg Maris Piper), peeled and cut into chunks
  • 5 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil
  • Salt
  • Handful fresh rosemary sprigs
  • Bulb of garlic, broken up into individual cloves (keep the skin on)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/390°F/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Add the potatoes and some salt to a large saucepan. Bring to the boil and then simmer on medium-high for 10 minutes.
  3. Drain the potatoes and then fluff them up in the colander by shaking it back and forth.
  4. Leave them to dry in the colander, or ideally in a single layer on a baking rack, for 10-20 minutes if you have time (this allows the potatoes to develop a crust which goes nice and crispy in the oven).
  5. Place the oil in the roasting tin then pop in the oven for a few minutes.
  6. Once the oil is smoking hot, remove the tray and add the potatoes gently but quickly, using a spatula to turn them over so they’re completely covered in oil. Sprinkle with salt and then place them in the oven for 25 minutes.
  7. After 25 minutes, remove from the oven and turn them all over. Add the garlic cloves and rosemary (evenly spaced) then return the pan to the oven for another 20-30 minutes or until golden and crispy.



Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
