Perfect Roast Potatoes

The perfect roast potato is fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. Follow our step by step guide to create the best roast potatoes ever for Christmas day or simply anyday! Our secret ingredient is DYC malt vinegar, which gives great depth of flavour and a little zing, give them a try! We used Lotatoes which are lower carb and lower calorie potato.  

4 tbsp olive oil
2kg Potatoes peeled and halved (we used Lotatoes, lower carb and lower calorie potatoes with a great taste)
1 cup vegetable stock
⅓ cup semolina
Salt and pepper
¼ cup DYC malt vinegar, plus extra for serving
1 bunch of fresh rosemary and sage
1 head of garlic, separated into cloves

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Drizzle a tablespoon of oil into two baking dishes and place in the oven to heat up.
Parboil the Potatoes (Lotatoes) in a large pot of boiling water with stock, for 10 minutes, or until the top 5mm of the Lotatoes are soft. Drain and return to the pot. Fluff with a fork or give the pot a good shake. Toss Lotatoes in semolina and carefully place in the hot oven trays. Drizzle with extra oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, add DYC malt vinegar, a tablespoon of olive oil, herbs and garlic cloves to a bowl. Mix to combine.
Once the Lotatoes have been baking for 30 minutes, remove from the oven. Use a potato masher to squash them a little (for extra surface area and delicious crunch), then pour malt vinegar mix over the Lotatoes. Return to the oven for another 30 minutes, or until golden crispy and cooked.
Spritz with DYC malt vinegar for extra flavour and serve whilst hot.
