Mediterranean Smashed Potatoes

Mediterranean Smashed Potatoes

Need a side that will impress your guests? You cannot go past these Mediterranean Smashed Potatoes. They are soft and fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside and topped with so many delicious flavours. I used Carisma Potatoes for this recipe as they are lower in carbs but just as flavoursome! Give them a go. 

Mediterranean Smashed Potatoes 
Serves 6 | 45mins

500g Baby Carisma Potatoes 
1 tsp sea salt 
1/2 tsp baking powder 

1/4 cup olive oil 
1 tsp sea salt 
1 tsp died oregano 
1/2 tsp cumin 
1/2 tsp smoked paprika 
1/2 tsp chilli 
1 pinch black pepper 
Zest 1/2 lemon 
2 garlic cloves, crushed 

Crumbled feta 
Chopped parsley or dill 
Lemon zest 

In to a saucepan filled with water, add the washed potatoes with the salt and baking powder. Boil until fork tender. 

Pre-heat oven to 200degrees FF. Drain water from pot and allow potatoes to cool slightly before transferring to a flat baking tray. 

Once cooled, add potatoes to baking tray and use the bottom of a mug to squash. Allow the steam to totally dissipate before adding the spice mixture. Generously coat each potato and bake for 45mins or until golden and crispy. 

Once cooked and ready to serve, top with crumbled feta, herbs and lemon zest. Enjoy.

I hope you love this one!
