Herb-Roasted Potatoes

Potatoes often get a bad rap for being unhealthy, especially those of the fried variety. But these deliciously seasoned and roasted potatoes will have you coming back for guiltless seconds.

Ingredients Amount
Shallot 1 lg., chopped
Garlic 1 lg. clove, minced
Bay leaf 1, crumbled
Fresh thyme 1 Tbsp, chopped
Fresh sage 1 Tbsp, chopped
Fresh oregano 1 Tbsp, chopped
Salt 3/4 Tsp
Pepper 1/2 Tsp
Olive oil 1/2 Cup
Small red or white new potatoes 16, scrubbed and patted dry


Blend shallot, garlic, and herbs in a food processor blender. Add the olive oil and blend until shallot is finely chopped.

Add and blend until shallot is finely chopped. Transfer 1/3 cup of herb mixture to a large bowl. Add potatoes to bowl with the herb mixture. Toss potatoes to coat well. Transfer potatoes to large oiled baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven at 375F / 190C, turning occasionally for even browning, until tender when pierced with a small knife and crusty brown, about 45 minutes. Transfer potatoes to a shallow bowl. Drizzle with the remaining herb mixture and serve immediately.
