Smoked Paprika Roasted New Potatoes

The weather is decidedly changeable and unsummery for July  at the moment, but I am determinedly still wearing sandals, still carrying my sunglasses in my bag, and still cooking summery dishes. Maybe I can bring it back by sheer force of will!

I made a big batch of my Very Garlicky Slow Cooker Lemon and Rosemary Chicken this week and was looking for something different to serve with it. I tend to stick to the same old potatoes and veg with dinner, especially during the week, and I just get very bored of them. 

I had new potatoes in the cupboard- the perfect summery accompaniment, but I wanted to add more flavour. The smoked paprika roasted new potatoes that I ended up making were just perfect; crispy on the outside and gorgeously fluffy on the inside, with a bang of flavour from the smoked paprika and the chilli. The best thing is that they are very easy to make, with just 5 basic ingredients and virtually no prep, so you could easily do them on weeknights to jazz up any meal.


If you love easy dishes that you just throw on a baking tray- these are for you!
