Air Fryer Roast Potatoes
Roast potatoes are the stable ingredient to any Sunday dinner and most people would generally agree that the crispier the potato, the better.
Thanks to the way that air frying works, roast potatoes are perfect for air frying as they come out crispy all over but soft on the inside. Add some seasoning and herbs and you’ll have roasties that everyone around the dinner table will love.
Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
- 500g of new potatoes, halved
- 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp. Cajun seasoning (optional)
- Coarse salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Lemon wedge, for serving
- Freshly chopped parsley, for garnish
Place the halved potatoes in a large bowl, add in the oil and garlic powder and cajun seasoning. Season further with salt and pepper.
Add the potatoes to your air fryer bowl (or basket) and cook for 12 minutes. If your air fryer doesn’t have a stirring paddle feature, then give the basket a shake and stir. Cook for a further 12-15 minutes until the potatoes are crispy and golden brown.
Just before serving, add a squirt of lemon juice and garnish the potatoes with the chopped parsley.
