Flavours from the Mediterranean are on your table with this super side of tender spuds. Maris Pipers make for a great boiling potato as they turn out nice and fluffy and hold the fresh, herby flavours nicely. Dish these up with a serving of meat for a meal that will go down a storm. See method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 210°C, fan 200°C. Toss all the ingredients (except the herbs, if using) together in a bowl; season. Spread out in a large roasting tin and roast for 50 mins, stirring halfway to prevent the potatoes browning unevenly. Scatter over the fresh herbs, if using. Delicious served with roasted lamb or chicken.

Cook's tip: Try swapping the bay leaves for 1 tsp dried oregano, tossed through with the other ingredients before roasting.
