Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour
Total time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
Cooking spray, 6 potatoesscrubbed and cleaned, 2 tbsp olive oil split, 8 tbsp unsalted butter melted, 3 cloves garlic, 1 tbsp fresh rosemary chopped, 2 tbsp fresh chives chopped, 1 tbsp fresh thyme chopped, 1 tsp kosher salt, ½ tsp black pepper, 75g vegetarian Parmesan cheese finely grated, and 2 tbsp fresh parsley.
Preheat oven to 220°C.
Line a baking tray with foil and spray it with cooking oil.
Place a potato on a cutting board in between two chopsticks or the handles of two wooden spoons. Slice thin slices approximately ¼ inch thick but be careful not to cut any lower than 1/3 inch from the base of the potato, to ensure the potato stays intact. Repeat until you have sliced all the potatoes.
Place the potatoes on the prepared baking tray. Brush 2 tablespoons of olive oil in between the slices and all over the potatoes. Now, place them in the oven and bake until tender and falling open, approximately 50 -60 minutes.
Towards the end of baking the potatoes, make the butter topping. Melt the butter and mix olive oil, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and drizzle the butter mixture over them, sprinkle with vegetarian Parmesan cheese, and return them to the oven for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the oven, brush them with any surplus butter from the baking sheet and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately and enjoy!
