Herb Roasted Potato

If not for the medical advise, I would prefer taking potato daily instead of rice.  I love potato since young, potatoes in chicken curries , in curry puffs , mashed potatoes, potato croquettes and of course potato fries :))  Potatoes are basically bland so they need some herbs and spices to make them delicious. They contain lots of starch which is not good for me but I do eat at random when I have roasts for dinner. I  will have one or two in place of a bowl of rice. Herb roasted potato is one of my favourite sides when I am serving western food to the family. There are two more members who shared the same passion for potatoes....wild boar and piggy gal ! :))  This herb roasted potato is so flavorful that you can snack on it while watching your favourite TV programmes. It is so much healthier than snacking on fries :p

This is so easy to prepare and the herbs flavor bursting in your mouth with every mouthful will make you change your mind if you are not a potato lover.  The fresh italian parsley , garlic , cajun and cayenne pepper ,sea salt and a dash of  ground black pepper married well into this russet potatoes giving you an awesome taste that is to die for :p

boiled the potatoes in salted water  for 20 minutes.....

drained them and rub the chopped herbs - fresh italian parsley , garlic
and sprinkle ground black pepper , cajun and cayenne pepper all over
the potatoes. Before baking drizzle olive oil over the potatoes

bake at 200 º C for 30 minutes

I love the burnt part...flavorsome and mmmmm.....actually I can't
live without potato :p

one for me and two for Daddy...Josh doesn't like potatoes :(
but he loves chicken burgers and for the last one week
I have been busy baking burger buns for him
lots of homemade chicken burgers too !

Enjoy this simple and easy Herb Roasted Potatoes !
