Whether it is a simple everyday family dinner or a fancy dinner party with friends, this is an easy way to turn boring potatoes into a fantastic side dish.
- 500 g of small potatoes
- 6 cloves of garlic
- a few rosemary twigs
- 1/2 of a lemon
- olive oil
- sea salt
Wash the unpeeled potatoes, halve larger ones, if necessary. With the palm of your hand or with the blade of a large knife slightly crush the unpeeled garlic cloves. Put potatoes and garlic in a pot, salt generously (unpeeled potatoes need more salt), cover the potatoes with water and boil on a medium heat until cooked.
Strain the potatoes and the garlic cloves and place them in a large pan. With a potato masher slightly press the potatoes but do not crush them. Rinse the rosemary, shake dry, put the twigs in the pan. Drizzle the potatoes with 2 – 3 tbsps of olive oil and fry them until golden brown and crispy; occasionally turn.
Serve the potatoes drizzled with a bit of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Best served with roasted or grilled meats.
