Simple New Potatoes Bake with Pumpkin Seeds
Simple new potatoes bake with pumpkin seeds (all pantry ingredients) – perfect for dinner or as a side dish to fish & meats. Also delicious when enjoyed with salad or even on its own.
Servings: 6 people
- 1 lb (half a kilo) new/baby potatoes brushed with skin on
- 1/3 cup raw pumpkin seeds no shells
- 4 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp all purpose seasoning preferably organic
- 5 cups water for boiling
Soak new/ baby potatoes in cold water for 10 minutes. Then, brush the skin until well cleaned (I use regular dish kitchen brush from IKEA). Peel if desired.
Optional: cut larger new potatoes in half or more - like I did for the batch in the photos.
In large soup pan add water and bring to a boil. Then place cleaned potatoes in boiling water and cook for around 5 minutes (until they get slightly cooked, but still firm). Strain, using a colander and place in baking dish of choice (preferably non-stick).
Add oil, pumpkin seeds and all purpose seasoning and stir until all potatoes are coated.
Place potatoes in (cold if using ceramic baking dish) oven and cover with aluminium foil and cook on 200C/400F. After 15 minutes, remove foil and bake until potatoes are cooked all the way through. Regularly check with fork if potatoes are softened and ready.
