0 Gluten Free Rosemary Potato Wedges

Here's an easy yet simple recipe to make a healthy and delicious alternative to french fries for dinner. The great part about the recipe is it is easy to scale the portion size, and you get to control the amount of sodium and oil that goes into the dinner. No deep frying, just beautifully browned potatoes.

Adding fresh herbs to any recipe add tons of flavor without adding large volumes of fat or calorie to a dish. Adding herbs at the end of cooking bring out their aromatics without burning and becoming bitter. Here's a quick guide to pair types of herbs with some dishes:

  • Rosemary - pork, chicken, lamb, potatoes salmon
  • Thyme - Pork, lemon, chicken, soups
  • Parsley - tomato sauces, beef, chicken 
  • Basil - pesto, beef, pizza, tomato sauce
I love the combination of potatoes with rosemary and thyme. Tasty!

Serving Size: Side for 3-4 people
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10-14 minutes

20 baby gold potatoes, quartered
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
3 tablespoons chopped rosemary
2 tablespoons chopped thyme

Preheat a sautee pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil, and coat in the inside of the pan. Add the potatoes, salt and pepper. Stir occassionally, every 3-4 minutes, until all sides are golden brown and a fork is inserted easily. Add the herbs to the pan, and toss to coat the potatoes. Cook for an additional minute, then serve.
