Fingerling Potatoes with Roasted Garlic

6 Aug

My favorite potato farmer had red fingerling potatoes available at his stand at the farmers’ market and I chose this simple, delicious preparation to showcase them.

Time: 35 minutes              Serves: 4


  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes (I used red fingerlings), washed & patted dry
  • 4 garlic cloves (large), peeled
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • sea salt & black pepper, freshly ground – to taste

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Place garlic in the center of a square of aluminum foil. Pour 2 tbsp olive oil over top and seal packet.
  • Place potatoes in a roasting pan. Toss with remaining 2 tbsp olive oil and season with salt & pepper.
  • Place roasting pan and garlic packet in center rack of oven and roast for 30 minutes.
  • Remove garlic packet and carefully open. Mash cloves and incorporate oil.
  • Remove potatoes (once done, 30 minutes should do it but roast longer as needed). Toss garlic paste with potatoes.
