Happiness is  . . .

A big ol’ bowl of deliciously golden, crisp and crunchy, light and fluffy, perfectly seasoned, oven roasted baby potatoes.

Those of you who follow along on Facebook and Instagram know how head over heels in love I am with roasting alllll of the things and these deliciously simple, perfectly roasted baby potatoes are currently taking center stage.

Truth be told, they have been in the spotlight for quite some time now I just haven’t officially told you about it here on this humble little blog of mine.

But, it’s time to dust off your dancing shoes people because today is the day.

I figured with St Patrick’s day just a few days away now was the perfect time because we all know how much the Irish luuurrrvvvveeeee their potatoes!

And Irish or not, one taste of these golden, delicious little gems and you will be on your way to happy dancing a fine little Irish jig that would leave Michael Flatley (aka- Lord of the Dance) for dead!!

Yes, really they are that good!

Gloriously golden, crisp, crunchy and perfectly seasoned on the outside and light, fluffy and deliciously tender on the inside.

Practically perfect in every way ❤️

And you know what makes them even better?!

1 – The fact that they are ridiculously easy to make.

Simply dice up your taters, toss them in a little coconut oil, season with salt and pepper and bake for 20ish minutes – boomshakalocka, deliciousness = done!

2 – The fact that they go with just about everything!

Serve them alongside your favorite burgers because a burger isn’t a burger without fries am I right?!

Or you could throw them into a big ol’ salad, crouton-style, for a little extra crunch.

They also make a great snack eaten simply by the handful – maybe dipped in a little of this deliciously dreamy 2 minute {paleo} garlic and dill dressing, or some sweet and tangy BBQ sauce.

And, of course, you should absolutely, without question serve them with these quick and easy carrot and zucchini fritters,  a poached egg (or 2) , some garlicky greens and maybe a little bacon (because, bacon ❤️) and have yourself an absolutely killer breakfast!

So simple, so versatile, so, SO delicious!!!

I mean would you just look at them?!

Edible perfection right there!

In all honesty I could take down this entire tray of taters, in one sitting, all on my own.

Just give me all of the extra crispy ones (with a little extra salt please) and no one gets hurt.

Consider this my St Patrick’s Day gift to you, the little pot (or bowl) of gold at the end of the rainbow

All natural, quick and easy, crisp, crunchy, light and fluffy, perfectly seasoned, gloriously golden oven roasted baby potatoes

Make them. Eat them. Love, love, love them

Deliciously Simple, Perfectly Roasted, Baby Potatoes

Makes 2-4 serves  of all natural, quick and easy, crisp, crunchy, light and fluffy, perfectly seasoned, gloriously golden oven roasted baby potatoes

Ingredients –

500g (1/2 lb) Potatoes, diced

1 teaspoon of coconut oil, melted and cooled (you just want enough to give your potatoes a nice light coating) – my fave is this cold pressed coconut oil by Loving Earth

A generous pinch of salt and and freshly ground black pepper

Optional for serving –

Fresh Chives, finely chopped

Method –

1 – Preheat your oven to 175’C/350’F

2 – Line a baking tray with baking/parchment paper and set aside.

3 – Place your diced potatoes into a bowl, or directly onto your prepared baking tray then drizzle with coconut oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.

6 – Once seasoned, spread your potatoes evenly over your prepared baking tray. Try not to over crowd them, use 2 trays if you need to so they have room to breath (which is what will ensure they get nice and crispy),  then roast for 20-30 minutes until they are deliciously golden and crispy. You will want to rotate, shake the tray and give them a bit of a stir around the half way point to make sure they cook evenly on all sides.

7 – Enjoy them as a side with your protein of choice or simply as a tasty, tasty  snack drizzled with a little roasted almond and jalapeno pesto or dipped in some of our healthy homemade Asian style BBQ sauce or this creamy, dreamy, 2 minute {paleo} garlic and dill dressing or you could (and should) serve them with some quick and easy carrot and zucchini fritters, an egg or two, some garlicky greens  and some avocado for a seriously nourishing breakfast, lunch, dinner or post workout feast.

Enjoy xo
