Roasted Potatoes & Yams
PREHEAT OVEN* 375F- 400F. 180C -200C. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
WASH potatoes use 3 or 4 depending on size. CUT into large cubes – making sure everything is a similar size due to cooking time.
ADD to a lined sheet pan – toss with 1 tsp olive oil + ½ tsp salt + pepper.
ROAST 30-40 mins until potatoes are golden and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
REMOVE from oven and serve immediately.
*OVEN TEMP – depending on the oven and time and freshness of the potatoes – I roast my potatoes at 375F – 400F. 180C-200C. Freshly dug potatoes take longer to crisp up so I cook them at 400F | 200C.
MIX IT UP – add parsnips, carrots, squash, pumpkin, turnips, celeriac, cauliflower, – and cooking times will vary.
ADD HERBS – like fresh rosemary, sage, thyme, oregano all finely diced. Dried mixed herb or spice blends.
PREP in Advance – wash your potatoes in advance but its best not to cut them as they sometimes will go brown. IF you do cut them do not add any salt until you are ready to cook them as this will draw out moisture, it will pool on your sheet pan and they do not crisp up as well.
