Kitchen tips

The key to exceptional roast potatoes is not to crowd the tray.


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 200oC. Wash all the potatoes and remove any tough strands or eyes but do not peel. Chop the potatoes into 2 inch chunks. Put the white potatoes in a pan, cover with water and bring to the boil for 5 minutes.

  2. 2

    Add the sweet potatoes to the water and continue to boil for 5 more minutes. Sweet potatoes don't need as much time to boil as normal ones.

  3. 3

    While the potatoes are boiling, put the coconut oil into a large mixing bowl and place over the boiling potatoes to melt the oil. Drain the potatoes thoroughly in a colander and shake them to roughen up the edges then tip into the mixing bowl with the oil.

  4. 4

    Mix the potatoes in the oil and then transfer into a roasting tin (or two). Roast for 30 minutes, turning occasionally until golden and crispy.
