Oven Roasted Potatoes (Whole30, Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)
Mmmmmm… Oven Roasted Potatoes. Now this is my comfort food. Most people have a weakness to carbs in some way be it bread, pasta, rice or sugar. I am all about the potatoes. I just love a potato with a crispy crust and creamy inside.
These roasted potatoes are all of that! And these make a super simple side dish. Just roast the potatoes in the oven with a little salt, pepper and olive oil. That’s it!
I could eat roasted potatoes as a full on meal. But, obviously these make a wonderful side dish to just about any main course.
The selling point for the Whole30 program is that potatoes are allowed. I’d trade all the sweeteners in the world for some potato action! Strict Paleo does not allow white potatoes but does allow honey and maple syrup. While I love maple syrup, I love potatoes more. And Whole30 allows them in moderation.
Of course, when I’m eating Paleo I still enjoy my white potatoes anyway. So I guess it doesn’t really matter to me.
These Potatoes. They have that great golden brown crust with the soft, fluffy insides. I slice the potatoes in half lengthwise then slice the rounded side without cutting all the way through. Sort of like a mini hasselback potato.
This makes them prettier (in my opinion) and helps them to cook through evenly. It is totally optional. So if you want to skip this step . . . skip it.
Once the potatoes are roasty and toasty you are ready to go. These oven roasted potatoes are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Are these oven roasted potatoes good for you?
Yes! Potatoes get a bad wrap. But they are high in vitamins and fiber. Of course, if losing weight is a goal you do want to eat potatoes in moderation because of the carbs. Natures Carbs 😃
