Roasted fingerling potatoes with shallots and garlic
Start off with assorted fingerling potatoes. You can usually find these at your local grocery store in a small bag around the potato section. Or if you have access to a farmers market that would work too.
You will need
- Potatoes 1 lb.
- Shallots 3 or 4
- Garlic cloves 8 or 9
- Olive oil - Some glugs (2 -3 tbsp)
- Paprika - 1 tsp
- Oregano - 1 handful fresh or dried
- Salt and pepper to taste
Throw them into the bowl too.
Add the peeled garlic.
I found some really cool spices from the savory spice shop in Boulder Co. This particular paprika actually adds some flavor as well as color to the potatoes.
Ok you're basically done.
Just throw all the stuff into a glass baking dish. Cover it if you want a faster cooking time, don't if you would like things a little more crispy and let them bake at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. Stir it about halfway through so the stuff on the top can get some of the oil action in the bottom of the dish.
