As far as I’m concerned, potatoes are one of the earth’s crown jewels. They’re healthy, amazing and inexpensive. They taste good plain or even with just a little salt and pepper, but roasting them with garlic, lemon and Parmesan cheese takes them over the top in the flavor department. These colorful fingerling potatoes are not only drop-dead gorgeous, they are drop-dead delicious.
1 lb. fingerling potatoes, various colors if you can find them, quartered lengthwise
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
Juice from 1 lemon
¼ c. Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley, for topping
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Toss the potatoes in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes.
Flip the potatoes and add the Parmesan cheese to the top of them. Put the potatoes back into the oven and bake for another 10-15, or until the potatoes and cheese are light brown and crispy.
Season with additional salt, pepper and Parmesan to taste. Top with fresh parsley.
