Garlicky Roasted Potatoes with Herbs

Garlicky Roasted Potatoes with Herbs RecipeRandy Mayor


  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds quartered Yukon gold or red potatoes (about 4 cups)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind


Preheat oven to 475°.

Combine garlic and oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook 2 minutes or until golden, stirring frequently. Remove garlic with a slotted spoon; set aside. Drizzle remaining oil evenly over potatoes in a large bowl, tossing well to coat. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 475° for 30 minutes or until potatoes are golden. Combine reserved garlic, parsley, and lemon rind in a small bowl; sprinkle garlic mixture evenly over potatoes.


    "Always looking for ways to use fresh herbs, I came up with these parsleyed roasted potatoes. You can also use a mixture of herbs, such as basil and thyme." -Marti LoSasso, Arvada, CO
