🛒 What You Need

new potatoes seasoning and oil
  • New Potatoes– I used 800g, but you can change the quantity depending on how many you are serving.
  • Olive Oil – use 1 or 2 tbsp of oil. I used two tablespoons for extra crispy roasted new potatoes, but you can use just 1 tbsp and still get tasty results.
  • Seasoning – you can simply season with salt and pepper or add some extra flavour like season-all or paprika. I sprinkled 1 tbsp of paprika over them.

👩‍🍳 How To Make Air Fryer New Potatoes

Step 1

Start by washing and chopping the new potatoes, halving them. Quarter any large ones so they are all approximately the same size.

Step 2

Pat the new potatoes dry and drizzle the oil over them. Add any seasoning and shake until the potatoes are all evenly coated.

Step 3

Transfer the prepared new potatoes to the air fryer basket. Cook at 200°C/390°F for 20 minutes, shaking them at least once during this time.

Different air fryers may need less or more cooking time; cook until all potatoes are browned and crispy. Insert a sharp knife or skewer into one of the potatoes to check that it is cooked all through.

Step 4

Optionally garnish the roasted new potatoes with some fresh chopped coriander and season with some more salt and pepper.
