700g cocktail potatoes
1 ½ tbsp olive or avocado oil
3/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
fresh herbs like chopped chives, rosemary, parsley or mint for serving


  • Heat the oven to 220°C and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2.5cm chunks and then add to a medium bowl along with the oil, salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Toss well, and then tumble the seasoned potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread the potatoes out into one layer.
  • Roast the potatoes until golden brown on the outside and tender on the inside, 25 to 35 minutes. After 20 minutes, check the potatoes and use a flat spatula to stir them for the most even browning.
  • Scatter fresh herbs over the warm potatoes and serve.
