The work week has started again, so I’m back in the quick-and-easy lazy girl food routine. But lazy food doesn’t have to be bad, or lack nutrition. Whether it’s a salad or a bowl of pasta, both can be considered ‘lazy foods’ but can be wonderful.
Today we had ribs though, all I had to do was pop them in the oven and cook them. Okay, maybe ribs aren’t the healthiest of meats, but if you add a vegetable and potatoes you still have a pretty full meal. I added creamed spinach and oven roasted potatoes. Oven roasted potatoes are already quite an easy thing to make. Whenever I make them I wonder why I don’t do that more often, with different seasonings or oils. They’re always tasty and don’t take any work. My ‘lazy’ potatoes are even easier and quicker, yes they lose a little of the crispness, but not even that much. Wonderful if you need a quick potato, or when you’re cooking something else in the oven and you have room to put them next to it.
Lazy girl potatoes
- enough potatoes for the amount of people you’re feeding
- olive oil
- wax paper
Wash the potatoes and dice them into bite size pieces. Coat them in olive oil and sprinkle some salt and a generous amount of rosemary. Wrap them in wax paper and microwave them for 3 or 4 minutes on high (1000 Watts 3 minutes, 700 Watts 4 minutes). Place the microwaved potatoes on a cookie sheet in a pre-heated oven (200 degrees celsius). Leave them in the oven until they’re starting to get brown and crispy.
