Crispy Chimichurri Herb Potatoes

Ingredients for 5 servings

* Optional Substitution Note

  • 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


Step 1

Set oven or air-fryer to 420F / 216C.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 4

While the potatoes are roasting, mix together the ingredients for the sauce.

Step 5

Add the crispy potatoes to a bowl, drizzle with sauce and then toss in the herb mix while hot!

Step 6

Enjoy immediately!

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
