Roasted potatoes are definitely delicious–especially mini potatoes, which are so creamy and tender. This particular recipe for mini roasted potatoes is based on the traditional Swedish potato recipe that prepares fresh simple potatoes with a sprinkle of fresh herbs such as dill, minced garlic, salt & pepper, and a drizzle oil. This preserves the rich and savory flavor from the fresh potatoes alone. These dill & chive potatoes are roasted along with garlic, chives, and shallots until the potatoes have reached a creamy softness; it’s a simple recipe that requires a bit of prep before and then letting them absorb the spices and roast in the oven until tender. Simply wash and slice the potatoes how you would like and then coat them with seasonings. These are tasty little tubers, especially when dipped in this garlic butter or whipped guacamole.

In addition to being super buttery and delicious, potatoes are high in fiber, protein, iron, magnesium, potassium, and vitamins C and B-6. They’re also a great way to get in trace minerals like zinc, phosphorus, and folate. Basically, potatoes are full of nutritious elements that the body craves. It’s a good thing they are such a satisfying complex carbohydrate. So start eating and growing potatoes! They’re a great source of food that many ancient civilizations have thrived on for years. 

Now moving on to the recipe!
