Garlic-Parmesan Roast Potatoes

Servings: 4-6

  • Red Potatoes (medium sized) - 2 lb(1 kg), skin-on, cubed
  • Extra Virgin Olive oil - 1/2 cup
  • Parmesan Cheese - 2/3 cup
  • Garlic Powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp*
  • Curly parsley - 1/2 cup, chopped
  • 1. Wash the potatoes very well to remove any dirt. Cube them and rinse them once more to get rid of the starch.
  • 2. In a roasting tray, toss the potatoes with the garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt and olive oil.
  • 3. Heat your oven to 375F (190C). Cover the potatoes with a piece of foil and roast them for 30 min. After the 30 min mark, increase the heat to 450F (220C), discard the foil, stir the potatoes to rearrange them and roast for 10-15 more min. Keep a watch so that the potatoes crisp up nicely without burning.
  • 4. Take the potatoes out of the oven and sprinkle the Parmesan and chopped parsley on top. Toss to coat evenly. Serve as a side to grilled fish or meat. Bon App├ętit!
* I have only used half a tsp since the Parmesan cheese is salty. However, you can adjust to your preference of saltiness.
