You can do very little with potatoes and it will turn out to be the most satisfying dish. That's how I see them. It is very extensively used in Indian cuisine.
I know that deep fried foods taste real good, but most times you can get the same tastes with baking and without all the guilt that goes with fried foods. So I decided to make a nice accompaniment to our dinner by roasting potatoes with herbs.
1 large potato
1Tbs olive oil
1/4 tsp dried basil leaves
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp rosemary leaves
fresh ground peppercorn (I used a mix of black, white and pink peppercorns)
Peel and cube the potato into 1 inch pieces. Add the oil, herbs, salt and pepper to the potato and mix well so that the potato cubes are evenly coated. Place them in a roasting pan or if you are using a tray - line it with foil and use some cooking spray on it. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the pieces over and bake for another 10 minutes.
Enjoy it as a snack with some sour cream or just by itself.
Tips: If you do not have garlic salt, you may just add a dash of garlic powder.
bon appetit !!!
