About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Crispy Chimichurri Herb Potatoes


Crispy Chimichurri Herbed Potatoes
Ingredients for 5 servings

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1lb red potatoes, halved or quartered into 1.5-2 inch pieces
  • 1lb creamer (yellow) potatoes, halved or quartered into 1.5-2 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • Sauce
    • 4 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/4 cup chopped parsley, tightly packed
    • 3 tablespoons fresh tarragon, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • pinch of sea salt & cracked pepper
    • 1 teaspoon red pepper
  1. Set oven or air-fryer to 420F / 216C.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.  Add a teaspoon of baking soda and then add the potatoes and cook for 6 – 8 minutes until they are somewhat tender with a bit of resistance when poked with a fork or knife (note: if they crumble when poked then you’ve overcooked the potatoes for this recipe).  Drain the potatoes and set aside in a bowl to cool until you can comfortably touch them with your hands.
  3. Drizzle olive oil and sea salt & pepper then toss the potatoes together.  Do NOT worry if the outside is sticky – that’s what you want for crispy potatoes.  Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet – do NOT  crowd the pan – and then bake in the oven/air-fryer for 22 – 25 minutes, or until the outside is golden and crispy.
  4. While the potatoes are roasting, mix together the ingredients for the sauce.
