"If the divine creator has taken pains to give us delicious and exquisite things to eat, the least we can do is prepare them well and serve them with ceremony."
-Fernand Point, 20th century French chef

The refrigerator light goes on...

If you are in a hurry wrap the potatoes in a paper towel and cook on high in microwave for 3 minutes instead of boiling them.


 

Roasted Potatoes

Servings: 4 | Serving size: about one cup

Cooking Time: 60 Minutes

This recipe can be multiplied by 2.

3 quarts water
1 lb medium red or Yukon gold potatoes (cut into 1 inch chunks)
2 tsp unsalted butter
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 Tbsp fresh parsley (minced)
1 Tbsp fresh chives (minced)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp chili powder

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Place the water in a medium stock pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes and reduce the heat to medium-high. Simmer for 10 minutes and remove. Drain potatoes and let them cool slightly before cutting them into quarters.

Place potatoes in a roasting pan large enough so that they are not crowded.

Put the butter on top and sprinkle the garlic, parsley, chives, salt, and chili powder over the potatoes.

Place the pan in the oven and roast for about 25-30 minutes. As soon as the butter has melted, stir the potatoes, then stir them gently about every five minutes thereafter.

They are done when they are slightly crisp on the outside (about 25-30 minutes).
