Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary.

Looking for a side dish that’s both healthy and delicious? Look no further than these roasted potatoes with rosemary! This recipe takes “oven-roasted” to a whole new level, with crispy exteriors and fluffy insides bursting with flavor.

Rosemary for the Win

Fresh rosemary adds a wonderful, delicate touch to these potatoes, perfectly complementing any main course. It’s no wonder potatoes are a staple at gatherings – they’re versatile and universally loved. Did you know potatoes are available year-round thanks to staggered harvesting? This makes them a perfect choice for any occasion, from family dinners to potlucks.

The Beauty of Simplicity

The beauty of roasted potatoes lies in their simplicity. Sometimes, all you need is a touch of salt and pepper. But if you’re feeling fancy, like me, adding some fresh rosemary takes things up a notch!

Potato Power: Choosing the Right Spud

There’s a whole world of potatoes out there, but not all are created equal for roasting. For this recipe, we’ve chosen red potatoes. These small to medium-sized spuds, with their smooth red skin and white flesh, hold their shape beautifully during roasting, making them the perfect choice for this dish.

Salt: It’s Not All Created Equal

Don’t underestimate the power of salt! While some might say “salt is salt,” different varieties have distinct flavors. For roasted potatoes, sea salt is a great option. It enhances the earthiness of the potatoes and works beautifully with the rosemary to create a truly mouthwatering side dish.

Fresh vs. Dried Rosemary

While fresh rosemary is ideal, you can substitute dried rosemary in a pinch. Remember, dried herbs are more concentrated, so you’ll need much less.

Here’s a breakdown of the ingredients for the Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary:

  • 2 pounds medium to small unpeeled red potatoes cut into wedges: This is the star of the show! You’ll need about 2 pounds of red potatoes, which are typically small to medium in size. No need to peel them – the skin adds flavor and nutrients. Cut them into wedges for that perfect crispy-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside texture.
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil: Olive oil adds richness and helps the potatoes roast to a beautiful golden brown. You can adjust the amount depending on how crispy you like your potatoes.
  • 2 – 3 garlic cloves minced: Fresh garlic adds a wonderful savory flavor to the potatoes. Feel free to adjust the amount based on your preference – for a more intense garlic taste, use 3 cloves. Mince them finely for even distribution throughout the dish.
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves: This is the key ingredient that elevates these potatoes from ordinary to extraordinary. Fresh rosemary leaves add a lovely aromatic touch with a hint of pine and earthiness.
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt: A good quality salt enhances the natural flavors of the potatoes. Sea salt or kosher salt are both great options, with sea salt adding a slightly more complex flavor.
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper: Freshly ground black pepper adds a touch of heat and depth to the dish. Grind it just before using it for the best flavor.
