Roasted potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes because they are super easy to make and are a perfect side dish for almost any meal. Plus, you can use just about any kind of potato and it will be great!
Y’all know my little obsession with cilantro.. no? I use garlic and cilantro in most of my savory dishes because the flavor combination is just mouth watering.
I coated these potatoes with a garlic, cilantro, and olive oil “pesto”– Doesn’t that look so good!After smothering the potatoes in the yummy garlic cilantro mixture I roasted them single layer for 40 minutes at 400 degrees.
The potatoes should be nice and crispy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. You can serve them as a side dish or just grab a fork and enjoy them with hot sauce like I did!
