Roasted Potatoes

This recipe began life as Garlic Roasted Potatoes by Ina Garten. But I think only the absence of garlic merits headline status in a vegetable recipe.

Garlic powder will stick to the potatoes better, but then you won’t have any burnt garlic bits left over to snack on.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Mix with garlic, oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. Arrange in a single layer in a roasting pan.
  4. Sprinkle artfully with cumin and paprika.
  5. Roast 45 minutes at 400°, stirring halfway through.

Variants

Combine with roasted green beans for the last 15 minutes.
