What goes well with this dish? Im a vegetarian so cant have the fish or chicken with it.

maybe try a casserole with butter beans and tomatoes, or maybe something with aubergines?

Tried this recipe but I must have done something wrong as the result was truly hideous. Overpowering flavour of tomato purée while even after an extra 40 minutes roasting, the potatoes remained crunchy inside. I can only assume the potatoes should be parboiled first but this isn't specified.

Jury still out........just made these for myself & my husband. We thought they were ok but not sure that I got the mixture of tomatoe puree, paprika & oil right as I felt the taste was predominently tomatoe. I didn't have smoked paprike & used ordinary paprika instead so maybe this is why. My mixture was quite lumpy & a bit dry so i had to keep adding oil while cooking. I did part boil first but still had to cook them in the oven at 200C for about 40 mins - they were crispy but a little burnt :-( Unfortunately they did not look as good as the recipe pic! Think I will need to give these another try for a better result.

These are great! Very easy to prepare and make a refreshing change from plain and boring side dishes. I added a bit of curry powder to the coating mix to spice them up a bit and also cooked them on gas mark 5 instead which I think was a good move, although they were still slightly firm inside so next time I think I will par-boil them first as well. I'm sure with a bit of practice I will manage to perfect them!

Really lovely although I think next time I will not bother with the lemon juice.
