Jacket potatoes with basil and tomato sauce
Prep Time : 0:45 | Cook Time : 0:15 | Total Time : 1:00 | Serving : 4 person.


  • 4 large desiree potatoes (see Notes)

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 300g grape tomatoes, halved

  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, finely shredded

  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted

  • Small fresh basil leaves, to serve


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan-forced. Place potatoes on a baking tray. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 45 minutes or until tender. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until tomatoes start to soften. Add garlic. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add 1/3 cup cold water. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 7 minutes or until liquid reduces and tomatoes form a thick sauce. Stir in basil and 1/2 the pine nuts.

  • Step 3

    Cut a deep cross in the top of each potato, being careful not to cut all the way through. Using a tea towel, gently squeeze base of each potato to open up top. Top with tomato mixture. Sprinkle with remaining pine nuts. Serve topped with basil leaves.
