During my college days, my friends and I always made roasted potatoes when we planned for dinners together or if we had other friends over. After a little bit of chopping, you put the ingredients in the oven and that was it – you can go around and do other things while the oven did all the work. I baked some chicken, and as in all cultures potatoes go well with chicken. I had some squash that needed to be used, so I chopped those up with the potatoes and it turned out as a great side dish. Kingsley was busy picking the squash off my plate too 🙂
- Potatoes: 3 diced into bite size pieces ( I left the skin on)
- Squash: a handful pieces
- Onion: 1 medium chopped
- Garlic: 4 cloves
- Paprika: 1 tsp
- Olive Oil
- Salt to taste
- Cilantro (Coriander) – freshly chopped for garnish
Preheat your oven to 180C. In a non-stick baking sheet, add all the ingredients, drizzle some olive salt and toss well to coat the potatoes and squash evenly with the oil, and seasoning.
Bake in the oven until it is done. The potato skins will get crispy and the flesh will be nice and soft.
Garnish with some freshly chopped cilantro (coriander).
Serve hot as a side dish with your meal! How simple was that!!!!
