Herb Roasted Chat Potatoes- Vegan Mofo Day 31

I had planned to go out with something amazing like vegan and gluten free macarons, but unfortunately we followed this recipe and it was a complete failure. So instead I'm going to write about a simple but great recipe. I can get all caught up in new ingredients, fancy recipes and different cuisines that I forget that sometimes the simplest dishes are the best. This side dish is a perfect example. Great comfort food that makes you want to ignore you main dish and just eat the whole lot yourself.

Herb Roasted Chat Potatoes inspired by Jamie Oliver's dish
1kg Chat Potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 and 1/2 teaspoon and chilli flakes
2 Teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Wash your potatoes and parboil until almost tender. When done, drain them, add olive oi, salt, pepper and herbs.

Preheat the oven to 220ºC/425ºF/gas 7. Put the potatoes in a roasting tray and cook in the oven for 25 minutes until golden.

I have managed to post every day for the whole month, with the help of Toby who posted 4 posts to my 29, but who is counting? We have made all sorts of new things like chamomile ice cream, sour cherry ripe bites, microwave mug cake, salted caramel truffles, tawainese marinated tofu  and home made soy yogurt.

I've come across so many new blogs and bookmarked so many recipes and just loved the whole sense of community with vegan mofo. I'm a tad exhausted though and I'm still a bit behind with reading some of the blogs, so will try to keep commenting afterwards but am now going to take at least a few days off blogging to rest and make some repeat classics.
   P.S: it says this post was by Toby, but it was by me, ohhps- K

    These are kind of like chips, so way better than macarons anyway. :-P
