Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp plant-based butter, melted

  3. 3In a large bowl combine the remaining butter and olive oil, with the shallots, garlic and thyme.
  4. 4Season generously with sea salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Add the sliced potatoes and mix together so the slices are all coated.

  6. 6Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until tender and crispy on top.
