A super simple and super tasty recipe for roast potatoes with peppers, made all the more frugal by knowing supermarket ultimate price down time. At two Tesco stores near us it’s around 7pm each day. Bread goes down to 10p and veg is available from 2p!
Ingredients (quantities are entirely adjustable):
a bag of new potatoes (filled a medium saucepan), cut into chunks
1 bag of peppers (four peppers), roughly chopped
1 large onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
a little oil to coat in the oven
Optional extras: herbs, spices, garlic, other veg such as carrots and parsnips, aubergine, courgettes, mushrooms…
Par boil the potatoes, leaving skins on, while you pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F. Once partially cooked, drain and place the potatoes in a large roasting tin along with the peppers, onion, salt and pepper and toss well in the oil until everything is well covered. Roast for at least half an hour, until the veg is browning up.
Good as a side dish or as a main with rice and salad.
