Spice Crusted Potatoes - Wholesome Ireland - Food & Parenting BlogIngredients

  • 6 cold cooked baby potatoes (or 2 large cooked waxy potatoes), cut into chunks
  • 1 teaspoon sunflower oil
  • Pinch each of dried cumin, coriander, ginger, turmeric, garlic, white pepper and salt
  • Handful of green beans with the tails chopped off
  • 2 scallions (spring onions), finely chopped
  • Wedge of lemon


  1. Preheat a (fan) oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a small baking tray.
  2. Put the potatoes and the sunflower oil in a large bowl and ensure that the potatoes have a thin coating of oil. Sprinkle the dried spices on top and stir well to make sure that they get a dry crust coating.  Pour the potatoes onto a baking tray and put in the oven for 20 minutes.  Remember they are already cooked, so all you’re trying to do is to cook off the crust and warm them through.
  3. Rinse off your bowl and fill it with hot boiling water. Plunge the green beans into the water for 5 minutes before removing and rinsing with cold water then slicing into chunks.
  4. Once the potatoes have a crisp spice coating, remove them from the oven and allow to cool a little before mixing with the green beans and scallions.  Use a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to dress the warm salad.
