2 lbs Maris Piper potatoes, quartered into 1-2 inch pieces
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon, juice of
1 tsp sea salt, or to taste
1Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C/400 F.
2Soak your potato chunks in cold water for at least 30 minutes in order to wash off the excess starch.
3While the potatoes are soaking, in a small mixing bowl mix together the cornstarch, cumin and oregano.
4Drain and rinse the potatoes, patting dry as well as you can using a paper towel. Transfer to a large mixing bowl, drizzling with the olive oil and adding the cornstarch mixture together with the lemon juice. Toss really well, until the potatoes are evenly coated.
5Transfer the potatoes to a large baking tray covered in baking paper, making sure not to overcrowd. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, then carefully take out the tray and flip the potatoes. Put it back in the oven and bake for a further 15 minutes.
6Season with salt and allow to cool before serving.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
