While I feel like I’ve got the main dish cooking down, I still struggle with decent side dishes. I’m always looking for different ways to serve vegetables to my family. Today’s recipe is ridiculously easy but just a touch different: Oven Roasted Red Potatoes.
A couple years ago I went to Movara Fitness Resort for a week. It was incredible. I learned so much and was pushed to my limits. One of the things I loved was the classes there. In one of the classes the nutritionist Emily talked about how potatoes get a bad rap. I was thrilled when she said that because potatoes happen to be my favorite. Red potatoes are my ultimate favorite. I serve them often.
You only need three things to make this version of red potatoes: the red potatoes (obviously), olive oil and dried onion soup mix. The onion mix just gives it a little flavor. You don’t need to add salt or any other flavoring as it provides plenty.
Oven Roasted Red Potatoes
- 2 lbs red potatoes quartered
- 1 oz dried onion soup mix (such as Lipton)
- ⅓ c olive oil
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Line baking sheet with tin foil.
- Place quartered red potatoes on lined baking sheet.
- Drizzle with olive oil.
- Sprinkle with dried onion soup mix.
- Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes until golden brown, stirring at 15 minutes to make sure even cooking.
You pretty much couldn’t get any easier. Serve these on the side of a chicken recipe, steak, any main dish! I made Rosemary Chicken and asparagus (my other true love) to go with this. Oh my! It was healthy and delicious.
