Mint potatoes bites

A easy peasy healthy snack or side dish or even appetizer for your dinner with friends. Made with only three ingredients, these mint potatoes bites are naturally gluten free and vegetarian, so basically perfect for everyone! Make sure to use a potato variety with firm flesh and possibly an organic one, considering it’s the main flavour of these tots. The mint gives a unexpected twist that will make you fall in love and bake these again and again.
