Recipe by Nicky Mercer
30 - 40 minutes
10 medium-sized (skin on) potatoes
1 small bag of baby carrots
1 Tablespoon parsley
1 Tablespoon cilantro
½ teaspoon of ground black peppercorn
1 teaspoon chipotle powder
1 Tablespoon season salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon white pepper
¼ Cup Olive Oil *** You made need less or more. Just enough to coat everything.
Please note, if using spice mixes that contain salt, such as Garlic Salt, you may not need to add the salt listed in the ingredients.
Whatever root vegetables you choose, make sure they are all roughly cut the same size to ensure even cooking
1. Preheat oven to 400 F and line a baking pan with foil
2. Prepare Potatoes and carrots by washing and cubing into bite-size pieces. Add to a large bowl
3. Add the oil, spices, and herbs to the bowl and toss until evenly coated and spread onto a foiled baking pan.
4. Place in the oven and bake for around 30 - 40 minutes until golden. Halfway through cooking, use a spatula and turn the potatoes and carrots so they cook evenly. Check after 30 minutes if done as all ovens will vary.
*** You can also pre-cook this and wrap in a foil parcel and pop on the grill /bbq until ready for serving. If you don't want to pre-cook in the oven, please allow a little extra time for BBQ-ing!
