Oven roasted potatoes and sweet potatoes

Just a little something I whipped up for lunch this afternoon. I had two sweet potatoes left, and about a dozen really small normal potatoes. So I peeled and sliced them, and popped them in the oven for 40 minutes. And they were delicious (if I may say so myself).

What you need:

  • a baking tray
  • parchment paper
  • potatoes and sweet potatoes
  • smoked paprika powder
  • dried thyme
  • coarse sea salt
  • ground black pepper
  • few cloves of garlic
  • olive oil

Put the parchment paper on the baking tray and spread the potatoes and sweet potatoes out on top. Add a few cloves of garlic. Sprinkle with olive oil, smoked paprika, thyme, sea salt, and black pepper.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for around 40 minutes. The first 20 minutes I put the oven on 150C, and after that I turned it up to 180C to make sure they potatoes turned a nice golden brown colour. We ate them with some cajun chicken fillets and a salad.
