To make the roast potatoes.
Par boil then toss in a mix of lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic granules and mixed herbs, if needed spray with fry light and cook in the oven or in the air fryer at 160 degrees till crispy turning if needed.
I like to leave my potatoes marinating for a couple of hours as I love the lemon taste.
If you have the calorie allowance the stew tastes fantastic with feta cheese crumbled on top, add at the time of serving.
