Summer Recipe: British Gems Baby Potatoes, Egg And Tuna Spinach Salad

Summer Recipe: British Gems Baby Potatoes, Egg And Tuna Spinach Salad.

It is nearly July, how did that happen!?

This week my older boys have arrived home from University and the two younger children will soon be breaking up from school. Time to start planning extra large healthy family meals. A meal out soon becomes expensive if paying for six. So structured Summer meal plans are essential.

Over the last few days, we have been trying out and reviewing some Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference British Gems Baby Potatoes. I had been asked to share a recipe with a veggie-based theme.

Something to make up early in the day store in the fridge, where everyone can help themselves to a portion throughout the day. Ultimately making it less work for me. As long as everyone does their own pots! Not likely!!

We are a big fan of Sainsbury’s and we always buy our new potatoes from here when shopping. However, I had not noticed these British Gems before. Yesterday, I popped some in the oven to roast them with some olive oil and seasoning and they tasted great. So quick and easy to make up too.

I then had to roast some more for my recipe as the first batch was eaten whilst still warm, delicious.

How To Make Sainsbury’s Taste the British Gems Baby Potatoes, Egg And Tuna Salad:

  1. Preheat a fan oven to 180°C
  2. Wash and scrape the skins off the potatoes. Or just wash and leave on skins. Chop into 2 or 3 pieces depending on size. Place onto a baking tray. Drizzle olive oil over them sprinkle the mixed herbs with a little salt & pepper over the potatoes.
  3. Place in the centre of the oven cook for around 30-33 minutes, turning the potatoes over once or twice to evenly cook. Roast until lightly golden brown.
  4. While the potatoes are roasting, cook the eggs.
  5. Boil the kettle and add boiling water to a large pan. Gently lower the eggs into the boiling water, one by one. Simmer the eggs for around 10 minutes, turn the heat off and leave to stand for 2 more minutes. Drain the hot water and fill the pan with cold water to cool the eggs. Peel the eggs and pop on a plate to completely cool. Slice the eggs until cool completely.
  6. Once the potatoes are cool remove from the oven and put on a cold plate to cool.
  7. Wash the spinach, pop on a large plate.
  8. Once the potatoes and eggs are cool pop on top of the spinach, crumble the tuna and add a few crumbles feta cheese.
  9. Either enjoy slightly warm or refrigerate and serve later. Serve with your favourite salad dressing, mayonnaise or salad cream. To add a bit more colour and flavourings add some beetroot.

It was delicious and got the family seal of approval.

The Hubby helped himself, as he got in from work. Myself and 2 youngest had it after running club. My older boys finished it off late in the evening after a session in the gym.

One comment off my Sons was “to be fair it was nice” Great that makes it all worth it!!

I have already been requested to make another load up for the weekend. Not sure if they love it that much? Or that they know I am out most of the day!!

    I'm always on the lookout for potatoes with particularly good flavour because my youngest is not a fan of potatoes normally. If I buy really good quality potatoes she eats them happily.
