Herb Roasted Potatoes

The tress have shed their leaves as the cold winter overpowers the weak ray of sunshine that was seen at least during the afternoons. Long dark cold nights and shorter days with barren trees is going to be landscape for a while. But before I know, the landscape will soon change with beautiful blossoms all around. It could be hard to get out and do something productive during these let alone cooking something that can soothe your soul and easy to make; something that could be called a comfort food or something that could satisfy everyone in the family. I was debating with many such food but also in a dilemma to make to prepare that also be a great side dish. I walk into my kitchen wondering what to make and there lies a bag full of red baby potatoes. I knew what I was going to make – Pasta with herb roasted potatoes. I always have dried herbs handy and this was a perfect time to put them to use.

Potatoes dressed with herbs and spices ready to be baked

10 – 12 small baby potatoes
1/2 tsp of Herbs – Basil, Oregano, Rosemary
Salt per taste
1 tsp dark soy sauce
Red chili flakes as per taste
Freshly ground black pepper 1/2 tsp
3 – 4 cloves of crushed garlic
1 tbsp of olive oil

Herb Roasted Potatoes Served

Cut the potatoes into half. Save some herbs and chili flakes for garnish later and toss in all the ingredients well so that each potato is well coated. Let it marinate for about 20 – 30 mins. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Place aluminum foil on a baking tray place these potatoes. Bake for about 15 minutes. Turn each potato and bake it for some more time until the potato is cooked through and golden brown. Before serving, sprinkle with more herbs and chili flakes if desired. Tastes fantastic eaten hot on a cold day. Easy to prepare, delicious to eat.

    Just pass me that plate of delicious-looking potatoes! There’s something so beautiful about winter. The empty trees have a beauty all their own, as do the gray skies. And everything is about comfort: the warmth of sweaters, a bowl of soup, the holidays…
