Why I Love This Recipe

Lemon adds a wonderful addition.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 lbs. red potatoes, scrubbed, halved and cut into 3/4-inch wedge
4 T. extra-virgin olive oil
Salt & ground black pepper
1 med. clove garlic, peeled
1 med. shallot, minced
1/2 tsp. grated zest
1 tsp. juice from one lemon
1 tsp. minced fresh thyme leaves


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss potatoes with 3 tables oil in a medium bowl to coat; season generously with salt and pepper and toss again to blend. Place potatoes, flesh-side down, in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and cook for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to roast until the potatoes are cooked through and golden brown, carefully turning them with a metal spatula halfway through, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, mince garlic with 1/8 teaspoon salt to form a smooth paste. Mix the garlic paste with the shallot, lemon zest and juice, thyme and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large serving bowl. Toss the roasted potatoes with the shallot mixture and serve immediately.
