Go Smashed Potatoes
Serves 6-8 people as a side dish
1 lb. pre-washed mini potatoes (any colour)
5-6 tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
3 pinches Himalayan pink salt
1. Fill a large pot with water. Add the pre-washed mini potatoes to the pot. Cover the pot and bring to a boil for 12-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender/soft. Once cooked, you should be able to put a fork through the potatoes.
2. Strain cooked potatoes and place them evenly on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Using the bottom of a glass/container flatten the potatoes so they are all smashed!
3. Preheat oven to 400 F. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle Rosemary sprigs and salt evenly over the mini potatoes. Roast in the oven on convection for 30-35 min until potatoes are golden brown.
4. Serve as a tasty and healthy side dish with chicken, pork or beef.
NUTRITION FUN FACT! Potatoes are a great source of potassium which is important for heart health! Keep the skin on your potatoes to get even more potassium!
