Roast Potatoes with Garlic and Parsley


1-1 1/2 pound potatoes, cut into 1-1 1/2inch cubes
Olive oil
2 – 3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup or a half handful of fresh parsley


  1. Blanch the potatoes until they are just starting to turn tender. Drain.
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees, and put a oven safe frying pan on the medium high heat on the stove top.
  3. Add olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan, once hot add the potatoes, cut sides down.
  4. Let the potatoes sauté for 5 – 10 minutes, or until they’ve become golden brown (do not flip until they are golden brown).
  5. Flip the potatoes over, and move the whole pan into the oven to finish cooking – another 5 – 10 minutes.
  6. Chop the parsley and garlic together with a few pinches of salt until they are finely chopped and almost a paste.
  7. Test the potatoes with a knife to ensure they are tender, remove from the oven and put them into a bowl.
  8. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over them, toss in the garlic and parsley, season with salt and pepper and toss and serve.
