Marmite Roasties

Marmite – you either love it or hate it. But even Marmite haters will enjoy this easy dish.


  • 1.0 kgm Potatoes, scrubbed
  • 60 gm Marmite yeast extract
  • 2 tblsp Olive oil
  • Salt


Cut the potatoes into bite size pieces. Rinse off excess starch and bring to the boil in a pan of slightly salted water. Boil for around 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes in a colander and allow to dry for a few minutes. Warm the Marmite and drizzle it over the potatoes in the colander to obtain an even cross-hatched pattern. Mix well to get an even coating.

Pour the oil into the roasting tin and heat it in the oven set at 200 degC. Put the potatoes into the hot roasting tin and stir with a spoon to cover them in oil. Roast the potatoes in the oven for approximately 1 hour.
