Roasted Herb Potatoes for Kids

Herbed potatoes for Kids
Your kids will devour these herbed potatoes - especially if they make them themselves.
Last year the preps, year 1 students and I planted potatoes in the school garden. We planted a variety including some very cool purple potatoes which the kids were very intrigued by. After school resumed this year the students were eager to head out into the garden to dig up our potatoes and see how many had grown. We ended up with enough potatoes to make two large batches of roasted herb potatoes.
This is the simple, yet delicious, recipe that we used:
1-2 potatoes per child
A variety of mixed fresh herbs, chopped – we used mint, parsley, sage and thyme
Olive oil

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200oC and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Scrub potatoes until clean and cut into approximately 2cm cubes.
  3. Place in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of water and microwave for approximately 5-10 mintues (this is optional but helps speed up cooking time with a large group of students). Drain.
  5. Add herbs and enough olive oil to coat the potatoes. Stir through to combine.
  6. Spread potatoes on baking tray and place in oven for approximately 30 minutes or until nicely browned and crispy.
  7. Enjoy!
