I love potatoes, they serve so many purposes. They are delicious side dishes, they are for breakfast in the morning with eggs, they are a base to adding in meat and veggies for a bowl that’s perfect for lunch or dinner, and they are a delicious salty snack!
Growing up we had potatoes very frequently – Au Gratin, baked, mashed, scalloped. But, my mom never made roasted potatoes of any kind, which I still can’t really even believe! And turns out they are my favorite kind of potatoes – whether I’m using Russet or sweet potatoes, I pretty much always just roast them in the oven.
Today I’m sharing a recipe that I make all the time. These Roasted Rosemary Potatoes are the perfect side dish for pork, chicken, steak, and even make a great appetizer as well. This recipe only includes a few simple ingredients. Feel free to swap the avocado oil for olive oil if that’s what you have, and even if you don’t have fresh rosemary, you can just double the amount of dried and you’ll be all set! Get the recipe for my Roasted Rosemary Potatoes below.
Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
