Herbalicious Potatoes

Potatoes, roasted, fried or baked , who doesn’t love them?

This past weekend I debated whether to prepare chapatis or potatoes. Well potatoes won, and that is because hubby wasn’t around to influence the voting otherwise chapatis would have won pants down hi hi hi.

Since, we love potatoes that much, I try to prepare them in the most healthy way possible, so I normally bake them.

Ingredients:

Lots of patatoes peeled and washed

Dried herbs: sage, rosemary, thyme or whatever you have on hand

Salt

Black pepper

4 teaspoons of oil

When baking potatoes, I prefer boiling them first so as to give them a head start when it gets to baking.

Cut the potatoes into wedges like so;

the wedges look more like chips, but they are wedged

Place the potatoes in a sufuria, add water upto the level of the potatoes. Season generously with salt, black pepper and some of the dried herbs.

Let the water come to a boil or till the potatoes are almost done.

Drain the potatoes.

Remember to  pre-heat your oven at 350 degrees C

Take your oven tray, line it with some aluminium foil, this is to prevent sticking onto the baking tray and also makes clean even faster.

Grease the foiled tray with the oil the sprinkle some of the herbs. Place the potatoes in the foiled tray. Ensure they are on a single layer then sprinkle the remaining herbs and pop it into the oven.

in the oven

I let my potatoes bake, till the outside was golden and all crispy.

The herbalicious baked potatoes

                 Note:

Currently I’m out of parsley and hence the use of other herbs, but on normal occasions I’d prepare this with parsley instead of sage.

Verdict:

Delicious, the potatoes were not only crispy but full of herb goodness. They have to be the best baked potatoes I’ve made thus far “yippee” .

If I could it do over again:

Increase the quantity of the potatoes 😀 . We just couldn’t get enough of them.
