Sunday Supper: Oven Roasted Potatoes

When I think of Sunday Supper I think of food that takes a little more time to prepare than the usual weekday fast and furious. For us, Sunday Supper is a time when no one misses the meal and we take a few extra moments for savoring, conversing, and connecting.

Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or full-on omnivore with a roast in the oven, what says “warm, friendly, comforting meal” more than Oven Roasted Potatoes?

OVEN ROASTED POTATOES (Serves 4)

  • 12 small potatoes (Yukon Gold or Red New Potatoes-organic if at all possible)
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • oregano
  • paprika
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4 cloves of garlic

Tip: The smaller and more compact the potato is, the better I like it. It’s sweeter and more flavorful than any huge, starchy spud.

Preheat your oven to 375.  Clean and quarter the potatoes. (I don’t peel if they’re organic.) In a bowl, whisk 4 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, 4 cloves of crushed garlic and oregano, paprika, sea salt and pepper to taste. You can add any other herbs and spices you want. Sometimes I add chili powder. Coat the potato pieces in the oil. Spread the coated potatoes in a single layer on a baking dish and put them in the oven.

Thoroughly coated!

Thoroughly coated!

The cooking time will depend on the size of your pieces, but let’s estimate 25-40 minutes. Halfway through, turn the potatoes so all sides get browned and re-season with a bit of salt, pepper and oregano.

Gorgeous!

They smell so good while roasting and the finished dish is absolutely gorgeous! Have you oven roasted potatoes? Tell us how you like them done.

  1. I usually fry them in a skillet or boil them, what we call ‘Stewed Taters’. I haven’t roasted potatoes in years. Your recipe brings back good smells and good tastes. I will have to try this recipe soon.
