 How To Make Perfect Roasted Potatoes.




Preparation of roasted potatoes




We grease the oven plate or the container we prefer with olive oil.

We wash the potatoes without peeling, rubbing them well to remove all the dirt.

We cut them along and add salt. We dress them with black pepper or paprika.

We add the aromatic herbs we prefer. We have made a few of each type; In the variety is the spice.

On this occasion we have prepared them with dried spices with the exception of parsley, but if we have them fresh much better.

We place them on the oven plate with the skin facing up, so that the face with the spices is impregnated in the oil.

We introduce them to the oven. To get an idea, small potatoes will need 35 minutes in the oven. The medium ones about 45 minutes and the big 1 hour. 

As they are cooking we see how the skin is wrinkling a little.

We check that they are ready by pricking them with a stick. Your skin is crispy and detaches without resistance from the plaque.

We serve them with sauces, for example, mayonnaise or a good aioli or garlic oil, even with a little butter and let it melt. (It makes my mouth water just to imagine it)

The result is really colorful and very appetizing.

One more within the endless possibilities of preparation, a healthy recipe, a safe and healthy success that accompanies any type of dish: meat, fish, eggs, etc … can also be taken as a snack any day at home with a beer.

Tips for some roasted potatoes:

We can prepare them a little in advance and keep them warm inside the oven off covered with silver paper to dry out.

These potatoes still have very good taste the next day if we reheat them, so they can be very comfortable. They won’t be crispy, but they’re still very good.

In some cases I have commented that I prepare them in the microwave, you can and the result is similar but not the same. If you do not have much time you will shorten the recipe to about 25 minutes but it will be with a touch more cooked than roasted. 

This already depends on each one, who has to value the time and desire he has. One way or another, yummy!

Potatoes have a high percentage of water (75%) and carbohydrates ((16-20%). On the contrary, with a low protein content (2.5%) that is just under the skin. when consumed roasted with the skin its nutritional value is higher.

Potatoes only provide 80 Kcal per 100 g. but their energy value will vary greatly depending on how we cook them. Since they can absorb a lot of fat in their preparation.

Cooked or roasted are virtually fat-free food. They also do not contain gluten so they are suitable for coeliacs. With this recipe, they are very crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. They are really delicious …
