Potatoes are a staple in my house and they're very filling. Healthy roasted potatoes make a great base to build on. The starch acts like a blank canvas; they are transformed by the seasonings you dress them up with. You can change the seasonings to fit your mood, so maybe add chili pepper and cumin for a southwest treat. Another option would be to alter the recipe by replacing paprika with rosemary, which creates a delicious variation to mix things up. However you cook them, roasted potatoes are one of those easy vegan recipes that your family will love!
Please keep in mind that for an oil-free version of classic oven roasted potatoes, a silicone mat is essential. I have tried it with parchment paper, but I still lose some of the delicious outside coating because it sticks to the paper. It also works best to season the potatoes as soon as your done chopping them up, before they dry and lose the moisture that the seasonings will stick to.
Spread the potatoes out evenly on a baking sheet, if they're overcrowded the potatoes will steam instead of roast.
Healthy roasted potatoes are incredibly easy to prepare and are a great side dish to almost any meal. For my family I usually estimate one per person if I am making them as a side dish. The potatoes can be cut ahead of time and stored in a bowl covered with water until ready to use. I wouldn’t recommend leaving them in the water for more than a day.
I hope you enjoy the recipe!Print
