  • 1.5 lbs potatoes cut into halves or quarters if required
  • ½ large zucchini sliced
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4-5 thyme sprigs
  • 1 green onion optional, sliced
  • parsley optional, to garnish


  • Add the potatoes to boiling water (lightly salted). Reduce to a light simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C. Pour the oil into your roasting tray and heat in the oven for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes to the roasting tray, and move around to coat in the oil. Roast for 25 minutes. Then add the zucchini and thyme and roast for a further 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes and zucchini are fully cooked through.
  • Plate up in your serving dish, scatter on the green onion (if using) and sprinkle over some parsley.


  • It's important to first parboil the potatoes, as roasting without this step would take far longer.
  • Make sure to heat the roasting tray for at least a few minutes before adding the potatoes.
  • Check the potatoes are fork tender, and roast for a few more minutes if required.
