A tasty side dish can be as simple as roasted potatoes. Potatoes are a cost effective, satisfying and hearty option. They are a delicious comfort that we all love right??
Potatoes are generally one of the most cost effective root veggies and this time of the year they are super cheap! I just picked up a 10 lb. bag of for $1.99 CAD.
After you scrub ’em and chop ’em, go ahead and toss ’em with your favourite herbs and a few dollops of healthy fat. Also be sure to add a splash of citrus. Properly salting your potatoes is they key to a delicious flavoured potato. Some suggestions of herbs and spices include: oregano, basil, paprika, dill, turmeric, red pepper flakes. Pick your favourite combination and sprinkle away!
I love easy dishes like these that don’t require a ton of ingredients on hand. Sometimes there’s just no need to over complicate things!
These roasted potatoes come together with less than 5 ingredients and are easy peasy to make. No need for measuring spoons because roasted potatoes are pretty forgiving.
Here’s how I made these scrumptious potatoes:
Oregano Roasted Potatoes with Lemon Slices
What you’ll need:
- Small potatoes, cut into quarters (around 8-10 potatoes)
- High quality fat like coconut oil, duck fat, olive oil (3-4 tbsp or so)
- Generous amount of dried oregano or herbs of choice (2-3 tbsp or so)
- Pinch of dried thyme
- Lemon(s), sliced
- Sea salt or pink Himalayan salt + fresh cracked pepper
Toss all the ingredients in a large baking dish until evenly coated. Roast in the middle rack of oven at 400f for around 35 mins. Turn down the heat to 350f and continue to cook until pillowy soft inside. A knife should slide through as if cutting a slice of soft butter.
Hope you Enjoy.
