Fifteen minutes of hands-on time is all you need to prep this crowd-pleaser. Get the veggies in the oven first, as they take longer to cook than the pork. For even cooking, cut any larger chunks of carrot in half.

  • Prep time 15 minutes
  • Total time 45 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings


Spiced Potatoes and Carrots:
  • 400 g mini yellow-fleshed potatoes , scrubbed and quartered
  • 3 carrots, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise in 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon herbes de Provence
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (about 500 g total) , patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • pinch each salt and pepper


Spiced Potatoes and Carrots: In bowl, toss together potatoes, carrots, oil, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Arrange in single layer on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 450°F oven, stirring once, until tender and golden, about 40 minutes. Toss with parsley just before serving.

Pork: While vegetables are roasting, in large shallow bowl, mix together bread crumbs, Parmesan, herbes de Provence and oil. Rub pork all over with mustard; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Dredge in bread crumb mixture, turning and pressing to coat.

Once vegetables have roasted for 30 minutes, push to 1 side of pan; add pork. Bake until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, 8 to 10 minutes.
