Perfect in every season and loved by all the family members, herb roasted potatoes are a great choice for a meal. They are easy to prepare and you have the liberty to choose the herbs you like.

Here is our delicious proposal:

Ingredients for 4 servings:

12 small potatoes cut into 1inch pieces (2 ½ cm)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

½ cup olive (or sunflower) oil

2 tablespoons garlic (minced)

Rosemary, pepper, oregano to taste

Fresh parsley leaf, minced to garnish

Preparation

  1. Fill a large pot with water and boil. Add salt, baking soda, and potatoes, and stir. Baking soda breaks down outside of potatoes, helping form an extra crunchy exterior. 
  2. Return to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes after returning to a boil. A fork should easily pierce the potato pieces by the end. Drain and let sit one minute while moisture evaporates.
  3. Combine olive oil, rosemary, garlic, and a little bit of black pepper in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. Stir constantly until garlic just begins to turn golden. It will take approximately 3 minutes.
  4. Strain oil through a fine-mesh strainer over the potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste, and mix.
  5. Shake the pot that the potatoes are in. Roughing up edges will form an extra crispy exterior.
  6. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  7. Transfer potatoes to a large rimmed baking sheet and spread them out evenly.
  8. Transfer to oven and roast, without moving, for 35 minutes.
  9. Flip potatoes with a flexible spatula. Continue roasting until potatoes are deep brown and crisp all over.
  10. You can make a garlic sauce. It goes well with the herb potatoes. You’ll just need a cup of yogurt, garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
  11. Enjoy!
