Herb Roasted Turmeric PotatoesPrint This
- 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, about 6 medium to large potatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon ground dried turmeric
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoons black pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Peel the potatoes. Cut each potato in half lengthwise. Next cut each half in half. You will have 4 large wedges. Cut each wedge down the center to create smaller wedges. You should get 8 wedges from each potato.
Add the potato wedges to a large bowl. Add the olive oil, garlic, turmeric, kosher salt, black pepper, chives and parsley. Combine well making sure that each wedge is thoroughly coated.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Lay the wedges on the baking sheet with one of the cut sides down. Bake for 15 minutes without touching them.
Remove the sheet from the oven and turn each wedge onto the other cut side. Return them to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Test for doneness by pressing a fork into one of the wedges. There should be no resistance. If there is, return them to the oven for a few additional minutes.
