On Instagram last week, I asked you guys if you wanted to see recipes for sides or apps.
To my surprise, you guys wanted more sides!
Well, here we gooo.
These roasted potatoes are tossed in a cilantro garlic chimichurri that is pretty freaking DELICIOUS.
Chimichurri, for those who are unfamiliar, is a green sauce usually made with finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, oregano, and oli + vinegar. The beauty of learning how to cook is to be able to break rules.
…which I love to do.
Considering my cilantro garlic sauce is #1 on Google (thank you!), I decided why not change things up and use cilantro instead of parsley.
Here’s that delicious result!
Potatoes make the best side dishes, don’t they?
I mean you can mash them, broil them, roast them. They taste good in any way, shape or form. I personally love them cut in strips and fried…french fries, yeah love me some french fries!
All you do is grab those red potatoes, cut them in quarters, season and bake until browned.
I mean, so not only are potatoes a delicious side dish option, they’re also easy to make?
While the potatoes are roasting, you make the cilantro garlic chimichurri which again… SO EASY.
Grab a food processor and dump in all the ingredients. Pulse a few times until the mixture looks combined. No need for perfection here.
I promise, a thick, rustic looking sauce is what you’re going for!
