We’ve settled into our new place. We took a furnished sublet so the move was relatively painless. We’ve had a few people over for dinner or just a glass of wine, and the simple act of cooking and eating with friends here has made it feel much more like home.

Two weeks ago I had an empty pantry, and although stocking up can kitchen can be a little rough on the budget, it feels so good to start fresh. Slowly I’ve been picking up various sauces + spices, filling our cupboards and fridge with different jars, cans and bottles to keep things interesting. We live in a cozy little area of the city with tons of shops and markets to discover. Small fruit + vegetables stores, a health food coop, various middle eastern markets, and thankfully a really good french bakery to keep Matt alive. It’s been fun discovering where to get the freshest vegetables, the best variety of spices and the most delicious hummus (here – hands down, if you’re curious).

Pasta, roasted potatoes and myself are all in a three way race to win Matt’s heart. I guess I’m ok with the competition. If there is one thing that has never strayed since I met him, it’s his absolute love for potatoes. His food preferences are so simple, I think he’s shocked at the amount of nut butters I’ve managed to accumulate in such a short time. But it’s a good balance this way, it reminds me to keep things easy. To keep the ingredients to a minimum and to let good food speak for itself. This was the perfect simple meal for us to have here in our new kitchen – a few good roasted spuds for him, and a good mix of sauces and spices for me, a big green salad to share. Some good things never change, and right now I’m so thankful for that.

Salt + Vinegar Roasted Potatoes with Turmeric Honey Mustard

Roasted potatoes + mustard is a combination often on the menu here. Served with a big seasonal green salad is my favorite way to eat them. I love mustard, this québec brand is so good and has a no non-sense list of ingredients. This recipe will work with both grainy or yellow mustard, but I always opt for the grainy kind. Just a really simple, cozy meal for your fall tables.

Love condiments too? Check out my sister’s video on what condiments + sauces you should stock in your fridge. Tahini my heart.

Vegan (option) + Gluten Free. Serves 2 as a main, 4 as a side or 1 if you’re my husband.


  • 1.5 pounds (680g) small roasting potatoes
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon flaky grey sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons grainy or yellow mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tablespoon raw honey

What to do

Preheat the oven to 400 F / 205 C

Wash and half the potatoes. Place in large pot with apple cider vinegar and then cover with water. Bring to boil and continue to boil for 12 minutes. Strain and pat dry. Toss potatoes with olive oil and sea salt and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment.

Roast in the oven for 5-10 minutes and then reduce temperature to 350 F / 175 C and roast until golden brown and crisp, about 15-20 minutes.

Mix together mustard, ground turmeric + honey. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed, or thin with a little olive oil or water. Add a splash of apple cider vinegar for extra acidity.

Serve potatoes warm with an extra sprinkle of sea salt and a few drops of vinegar. Lots of mustard on the side.

  • Potatoes are the key to my heart too! And I love that quebec brand for mustard too! Definitely need to whip this up – so delicious!

    • Thanks Katrina! So many new fun brands to discover since moving back home! Hope you are having a great weekend x

  • I’m glad to hear you are settling into your new space so well Jodi 🙂 it sounds like if you’re going to have to live in a city, this is a cute one! Especially with all of those little markets. And I think our two men would really get along. I always joke that scott would have been a great Irish peasant – he could LIVE off of potatoes alone. The other night his dinner request: the largest bowl of mashd potatoes you can make. **laughing crying face** These salt and vinegar ones sound soooo yum! Reminds me of my favorite chips 😉

    • I’ve heard that sentence out of matt’s mouth more times than I can count. Except he always opts for roasted potatoes. Sometimes I wish I could be that satisfied by simple food, but other times I am so happy I’m the one who does most of the cooking! The city is cute for sure, definitely not for the long haul so I’m soaking up as much family time as possibly for now, focusing on the good things. Life’s just one crazy little adventure I guess, hope you’re having fun this weekend you guys x

  • I love how simple and delicious this looks. Your food cabinet stocking sounds like so much FUN! I love the experience of starting fresh and placing and organizing everything just as I want it (even though I know life will take over and the cabinets will soon have a life of their own…or maybe that is just me). I too like to focus on keeping food simple and letting great ingredients take the show. The best meals of my life have been the ones with the fewest ingredients.

    • Kathryn, don’t be fooled – in just a short time my pantry will need a good clean up too! My old tenant left me a bunch of gorgeous jars to fill with various grains + nuts + things since we some open shelves – and it looks so pretty and clean, but what do people do with all the leftovers that don’t fit in the jars? Ah – thats where the mess has started for me! Oh well, nobody knows that – well maybe now they do – oops! Hope you’re well and enjoying a great weekend with some simple honest fare. x
