1kg potatoes, peeled & cut into big chunks
2 large red onions, peeled & cut into big chunks
2 tbsp Olive oil, Salt & Pepper
1 litre hot vegetable stock
300 mls milk
a few fresh sage leaves, or a teaspoon dried sage
a little Parmesan Cheese
a few extra sage leaves (optional)

Follow The Steps

Pre-heat the oven to 200degC.

Place the chunks of potato & red onion into a large roasting tin – drizzle over the olive oil. Season with salt & pepper.

Place in the pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes then remove and turn the vegetables to ensure even cooking,

Scatter over the sage leaves then return to the oven for a further 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and starting to brown.
