4 medium potatoes (washed, skin on)
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3 Tbsp of italian herb seasoning
1 clove garlic, finely grated
Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a sharp knife, make crosswise cuts in each potato, about 0.5cm apart, stopping about 1cm from the bottom.
Place potatoes in a single layer, cut side up, onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Place into oven and bake until tender and crisp, about 45-50 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil and garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Serve potatoes immediately, drizzled with olive oil mixture. Pair with your protein of choice and mixed vegetables
When you allow potatoes to cool after cooking, it turns the fibre into resistant starch which is excellent for gut health!
