Roasted Potatoes

Ahh roasted potatoes, one of the easiest ways to eat this simple yet absolutely delicious vegetable.

Well what makes a roasted potato? Heat. Dry heat. Oven heat. For a while. Maybe 30 minutes or up to an hour depending on the oven temperature and the size of your potato pieces.

How can we make the roasted potatoes extra delicious? Add lots of flavorings! Like spices and herbs. This time I used garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, (isn’t that a song??), a little bit of oil, and of course salt and pepper.

After washing and cutting your potatoes into equal sized pieces, toss them in a bowl with the flavorings mentioned above. Then put them on a lined baking sheet (I use a silicone mat instead of aluminum or parchment paper to reduce waste).

Finally, stick them in the oven at around 350-420F, set your timer and forget it! Depending on how big or small you cut your potatoes will determine the time, about 30 minutes for smaller pieces and up to 45 minutes or even an hour for larger pieces. You should periodically peek into the oven (don’t open it!) to check the browning, and take them out when they look golden.

To make this a bit more of a meal, I added some asparagus. So easy and so delicious!
