Perfect Roasted Garlic Potatoes

All Foods by Ri Holiday Instant Pot Mediterranean Flavors Side Dish

THESE POTATOES ARE SIMPLY PERFECT. SOFT ON THE INSIDE AND CRISPY OUTSIDE.

Some people like their potatoes mashed, I prefer mine roasted and golden!

These babies turn out perfect every time!

They are the perfect side dish for the holidays or a nice dinner anytime.  You can't go wrong with roasted potatoes, a definite crowd-pleaser.

In this recipe I steam or boil my potatoes first before coating them with my seasoning of choice and roasting them up.  This leaves you with delectably soft potatoes that aren't dried out.

You want to make sure you don't skimp on the duck fat or ghee.  This is what will give your potatoes that crispy outside and beautiful golden color.

Finish them off with a good squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of herbs to really brighten them up!

If you want to prep ahead of time, you can steam/boil these ahead of time (up to a week) and store them in the fridge when you are ready to go.  You may need to keep them in the oven a bit longer if you are using them straight out of the fridge.

These are great served up hot or at room temperature so a wonderful choice if entertaining.

Change things up!

  • I love these drizzled with my tahini dressing or Schug.
  • or give them an Indian twist by sprinkling a tsp of chat masala, and cumin powder and using fresh cilantro as your herb of choice!
