Roasted Potatoes (12 of 14)

Today, I’d like to share another easy straight forward recipe that might come handy around holiday season. Roasted Potatoes with spices is a  perfect side dish that is definitely deserves a place on your holiday table. I just can’t wait to start preparing for the holiday feast. I love traditional Thanksgiving menu, but I also like to improvise and make little twists on recipes that make my dishes super delicious and super easy. I try to make as much as possible ahead of time, to enjoy more time with my family on Thanksgiving day.


2 pounds red potatoes (or any potatoes you’d like), cut in a bit-size chunks
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

In a large pot, bring water to boil, season with salt. Put potatoes in a salty boiling water, bring to boil and cook for 5 minutes. Drain.(This step can be done the night before, this way you save time and can concentrate on last minute details around your holiday table. And just throw these babies in the oven right before the dinner, and let the oven do the job. Actually, its a perfect idea for weeknight dinners as well)

Season with salt and pepper (I used 1 teaspoon salt; you can always adjust your seasoning at the end). Mix the spices together, and add to the potatoes. Shake well to coat. Drizzle with olive oil, and stir.
