These delicious buttery lemon and herb potatoes are a really simple way to put a tasty spin on a household staple. The flavours are light and work really well with so many other dishes making this a really versatile side dish.

This recipe has a really summery feel because it is packed full of fresh flavours and it makes a lovely side that is perfect for a barbecue or al fresco dining. If desired, you could add a little bit of lemon zest to this for an even deeper citrus flavour, or alternatively, you could reduce the amount of lemon juice used to make this flavour subtler. I love these potatoes served with my Easy 20 Minute Pulled ‘Pork’ and my Buttery Corn Riblets.

These lemon and herb potatoes have become a staple in my household because it is a great, fuss free way to use up any herbs you have that need eating, meaning it is briliant for helping to reduce food waste. I use mint, dill and parsley in this recipe and it creates such a lovely flavour combination alongside the lemon. If you wanted to switch up the fresh herbs in this recipe and only use one or two of them, or even add in some others, then be my guest. The herbs are interchangable so you can more or less just throw any in that you need to eat.

You could easily use up any leftovers by turning these buttery lemon and herb potatoes into an easy potato salad! Just stir through a couple of tablespoons of vegan mayonnaise, (and some capers if desired), to create a classic potato side dish perfect for barbecues!
