- About 500g / 1 lb tiny organic new potatoes, washed and unpeeled
- 2 Tbs. butter (You can use olive oil instead. But, you know, sometimes it just has to be butter.)
- 1 Tbs. soy sauce
- Coarsely ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F.
Put the potatoes in a pan with water to cover; add salt (the water should taste almost as salty as sea water). Bring to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes. (Do this while the oven is heating up.)
Drain the potatoes. Melt the butter in the same pan and add the soy sauce. Mix the potatoes and butter-soy sauce well, and put onto a baking sheet.
Roast for 25 to 30 minutes until the potatoes are browned and cooked through. Serve warm or at room temperature sprinkled with a little black pepper.
