Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Mix the oil, tomato purée and paprika together, then coat the potatoes thoroughly in it. Squash the garlic in its skin with the flat of a knife and place on a baking tray with the potatoes.
  2. Season well with salt and pepper, then roast for 40 mins, turning halfway through, until the potatoes have crisped up and are fluffy inside. Five mins before the end of cooking, sprinkle over the lemon juice and return to the oven. Serve with the parsley scattered over.

Very tasty! They took longer than 40 mins, but well worth it. Served it with a dollop of natural yoghurt and some finely chopped red peppers

As the lady above said, this is agreat companion to Chicken Cacciatore! I made this for my wife and son and added the Creamy baked onions as well. My wife was amazed at the result, clean plates all around. Thanks Good Food for another success!

these are delicious when they are finally cooked. Gas mark 4 is too low, had them in for near on an hour and still weren't crispy enough. after turning up the heat tho to gas mark 6 they were yummy.

Gorgeous! I par-boiled them first so they were really quite soft and crumbly, which resulted in yummy crunchy tatties which took just 10 mins to cook in oven! Served with homemade salmon fishcakes and sweetcorn....delish!

Simply brilliant - did take more like an hour to cook, but worth the wait. Everyone loves them.

These turned out really nicely. The children can be a bit fussy abiut trying new things but they wolfed these down and asked for more.

These were a sort of success, they tasted good and my partner commented that he preferred them to ordinary potatoes, but I couldn't get them to crisp... maybe I needed a hotter setting?

Gorgeous!
I added abit more tomato puree and I chopped 1 garlic clove and added it to the oil/tomato puree/paprika mix to give it abit more flavour.
I also used sour cream and chopped corriander as a dip- very nice!!

Had these last nite for a special b'day dinner for my boyfriend and they were a great success!! I pre boiled them for about 5-10mins first as suggested on another comment and it really helped to make sure they weren't too hard when served!! anyway I served them with chicken breasts stuffed with feta cheese and spinach (also found on here!!) a green salad and chunks of nice crusty bread and everyone loved it!! very easy to make aswell and a great alternative to normal roast potatoes - will defenetly make again!!

These were quite good although I wouldn't rush to make them again. I did think the lemon and parsley added to the flavour though.

All the family like them which is amazing. Use garlic puree sometimes, different spices etc. Dont use the lemon. Have made them lots of times. They even keep well prepared in fridge in a covered container - cooking later.

My bf and i had these last night, they were absolutly delicious. I served them with Chicken Cacciatore (which can be found on this site) and Cheese and Garlic Ciabatta bread, i diddnt have Smoked Prarika so used ordinary as this is what i had in the house. Really easy to make, just what you need after a hard week at work. x

Loved them really great favour, but did take longer than 40 minutes prob more like an hour I turned up the heat to max the last 5 mins of cooking to make them nice and crispy. Will def make again!!!!

Was looking forward to trying this recipe but was rather disappointed with the result. Needed much longer cooking time, almost further hour on gas mark 4! Maybe gas mark 4 was too low? When they were finally cooked through the taste was pretty horrible?! The only thing that made them eatable was, Tomato Sauce!!! Sorry, not very nice.

Loved these ..... accompanied Lemon, herb & parmesan crusted fish ........... great partnership, everyone else did too. May be it's my oven (not the best) but I just might par boil these for 4 or 5 mins next time as I cooked for longer than said and they were just cooked.

I made them last night. Thought they were supposed to be crispy, maybe I used too much coating, but they had a gorgeous flavour.
