Although to prepare this dish is recommended to use small to medium potatoes, you can use large potatoes but this will increase the cooking times.

Accordingly, here you can find a small list of classic seasonings for potatoes:

Ingredients

  • 14 Small/medium potatoes.
  • 1 tablespoon of Olive oil.
  • 1 teaspoon of Garlic powder.
  • 1 teaspoon of Paprika.
  • A pinch of Himalayan salt.

Instructions

  1. Wash really well the potatoes. I cooked them with a steamer for around 25 minutes. You can boil them too for 15 minutes or until the center gets soften.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 200 °C degrees (392 °F approx.).
  3. When you pierce the potatoes with a fork and they are tender place them on a baking/oven tray with olive oil on the base. If you want to reduce the amount of oil for this recipe, you can use a non-stick baking paper.
  4. Then, with a potato masher push down on the potatoes. If you don't have a potato masher, you can use a fork for small potatoes or a glass/mug.
  5. Peel and diced a ½ red onion and sprinkle on top of the potatoes.
  6. Season to taste with: olice oil, salt, garlic powder and paprika.
  7. Roast in the oven for around 25 minutes or until they start to get crispy outside.

Notes

I also tried a fork and works well too, specially for small potatoes.

I used Himalayan salt for this recipe, but you can use other salt, such as: sea salt.
