Prep time: 5 minutesCook time: 45 minutesTotal time: 50 minutesMakes: 5-6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs of baby potatoes (I used the little potato company terrific trio pack) 
  • 7-8 garlic cloves 
  • 1 lemon, halved  
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil 
  • 2 tbsp red crushed pepper 
  • 1 tsp oregano, dried 
  • 1/2 tsp Rosemary, dried 
  • 3 tbsp fresh dill, chopped 
  • 1-2 scallions, chopped (you can also use chives) 
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped 
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh basil, chopped 
  • Salt to taste (you want to season it really well)
  • Black pepper to taste 

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. 

  2. Add the baby potatoes to a casserole dish, add olive oil, garlic cloves, red crushed pepper, black pepper, salt, dried oregano, and dried Rosemary. Squeeze half the lemon juice on top and mix well!

  3. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 40 minutes (or until they are fork tender). Take it out half way, poke holes in the potatoes with a fork so the flavors get in. (You can fork the potatoes before baking too). Mix well, put it back in and let it cook through.

  4. Roast for another 5 minutes uncovered or until they have a nice char on them.

  5. Add all the fresh herbs, squeeze the other half of the lemon, mix well.

  6. Enjoy!


Notes:

  • You can use any baby potatoes you find.
  • You can make this 1-2 days in advance, refrigerate it, add the fresh herbs before reheating.
  • You can add all dried herbs if you don’t have fresh.
  • You can make this stove top if you want as well. I would par boil the potatoes first, poke holes in it with a fork and add everything to it stove top.
  • The timing of baking may change depending what kind of potatoes your use and the size of the potatoes. Be sure to check they are fork tender before adding the fresh herbs.
  • To ensure the potatoes cook thoroughly you can also par boil them before roasting them.
