Lemon Herb Roasted Potatoes

Lemon Herb Roasted Potatoes are a flavorful and easy-to-make side dish that pairs beautifully with a wide range of main courses. The combination of fresh herbs, zesty lemon, and crispy potatoes is sure to be a hit at any meal. Here’s how to make them:

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds (about 900g) small potatoes (such as baby potatoes or fingerling potatoes), halved or quartered depending on size
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh herbs, finely chopped (such as rosemary, thyme, and parsley)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

1
Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). This high temperature is key for achieving crispy, golden-brown potatoes.
2
Prepare the Potatoes: Wash the potatoes thoroughly and cut them into halves or quarters, depending on their size. You want the pieces to be relatively uniform for even cooking.
3
Mix the Flavorings: In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, chopped fresh herbs, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine.
4
Toss the Potatoes: Add the prepared potatoes to the bowl with the olive oil and herb mixture. Toss well to ensure each potato piece is evenly coated with the seasoning.
5
Roast the Potatoes:
Spread the potatoes out in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Try to space them out as much as possible to ensure they roast instead of steam.
Roast in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden, crispy on the outside, and tender on the inside. Halfway through the roasting time, give the pan a shake or use a spatula to turn the potatoes to ensure they brown evenly.
6
Serve:
Once the potatoes are roasted to your liking, remove them from the oven. You may sprinkle a little more fresh herbs over the top for a fresh pop of flavor and color.
Serve the Lemon Herb Roasted Potatoes hot, alongside your favorite main dishes.
