Roasted Red Potatoes Recipe with Tarragon and Garlic
Roasted Red Potatoes is my go-to side dish recipe!
This Roasted Red Potatoes Recipe is full of flavor from fresh tarragon, butter, minced garlic, and lemon juice.
I have to tell you guys something, I really struggle when it comes to making side dishes when I cook dinner. Here are my top three side dishes
Roasted or baked potatoes
Rice (pick one)
If you were coming to my house for dinner, you will see one of those four side dishes with my main entrée. I won’t lie, it gets a bit boring sometimes. I know there are several others like Baked Mac-N-Cheese, scalloped potatoes, or whatever. Those types of side dishes don’t get made that often because I don’t really do well with food that has a lot of dairy and they aren’t the healthiest side dishes to have. It is hard enough to get your daily servings of fruits and vegetables as is, and I always try to come up with other ways to get our greens into our daily diet.
It gets really hard and defeating when your husband says “Salad again?” or “Broccoli again?” I mean, what am I to do with that?
To be honest with you, I do not have an answer for you. So, I’m sorry if you are reading this blog post and identifying with what I am saying expecting a solution. You’re not going to get one from me today. The only thing that I am going to tell you is to get creative with what you know and this Roasted Red Potato recipe is what I know, very well.
I love a good Mashed Potatoes recipe. In fact, I like my potatoes a little lumpy. But I also love oven roasted potatoes just as much. The great thing about roasted potatoes is you can add flavor to them with just about whatever you want. You can use fresh herbs, cheese, or nothing at all. It is really up to you. This recipe is made using fresh garlic and tarragon. I made them whole, but you can most certainly cut the potatoes and bake the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Just be sure to flip them ever 10-15 minutes or so.
I can make anything out of a potato.
Potatoes are my best friend and they are always a good option for any meal. I don’t necessarily mean white potatoes either. I am also talking sweet potatoes too! Purple potatoes are on the agenda. I have often been asked if I have Irish blood running through my veins because of my love for all things potato. I mean, I guess it could be possible.
You can do anything with a potato. In this case, I took some whole Red Potatoes and roasted them with tarragon, garlic, and a touch of lemon juice for some brightness! The key to this recipe is aside from all the other ingredients is kosher salt. Kosher salt and coarse black pepper is a must in my kitchen. If you don’t season your food with kosher or coarse sea salt, you haven’t tasted your food. I only use table salt for baking because I noticed a difference in flavors when I use table salt versus kosher or sea salt. So when you are looking for a side dish try my Roasted Red Potatoes Recipe with tarragon, garlic, and lemon. You can use a different fresh herb if you would like. You can’t mess this dish up.Print
