These delicious smashed pink potatoes with pink pepper, fresh herbs and smoked paprika make a nice vegan side for almost anything.

They work especially well with soy satay and they are delicious with apricot mustard sauce.

I created them for the food photography challenge by the little plantation and then we liked them so much, I knew you would, too. So I put the recipe on the blog.

Recipe for the smashed pink potatoes


ingredients for smashed pink potatoes
  • 12 small pink potatoes (or any other small potatoes)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of panko/ breadcrumbs
  • fresh herbs and pink pepper


Wash the potatoes and cook for 15 minutes, then drain and let them cool off a bit.

Pre-heat the oven to 220°C (430°F).

Mix the salt, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika powder and the olive oil.

Place the cooled potatoes on a baking sheet, and gently press them down with the palm of your hand. Brush them with spiced olive oil and sprinkle the breadcrumbs over them.

Bake for about 35 minutes, until they are browned and crispy. 

Serve with fresh herbs, pink pepper, flaky salt and vegan mayo or sour cream, peanut sauce or apricot mustard sauce.
