Roasted Purple Peruvian Potatoes

These were a great find at the farmer’s marker. Sometimes when it’s cold out, that’s definitely relative depending on where you are at, you just feel like a dish like this. Enjoy the warmth it brings.

IMG_3986I used Rosemary here, but any other hearty herb will do. IMG_3989Wash them well. The skins are the best. IMG_4005A healthy amount of olive oil will make them crisp.IMG_4023This is some amazing salt that my mother gave me after a trip to Boston. I realized later it has somewhat of a cult following so order some online–the mix of salt and super aromatic herbs is worth it.     IMG_3999Mix everything well. I leave my garlic like this so that it almost turns into little garlic chips while baking.  IMG_4012Bon appétit.
