Ingredients:

  • 3 russet potatoes, roughly peeled and cut into even wedges
  • 2-3 tbsp. avocado or olive oil to rim pan
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil, for coating
  • 1 large handful rosemary
  • 2-3 cloves fresh garlic, minced

  5. Remove from oven, flipping oven more. Return to oven for 5-10 minutes more or until golden brown and crispy.

ROASTED POTATO AND TURNIP MASH

Ingredients:

  • 6 Yukon Gold Potatoes (medium sized), peeled and cubed
  • 2 turnips, peeled and cubed 1 inch
  • 2 tbsp, olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup whole milk, warmed
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 spring fresh thyme, leaved removed from stem and finely chopped

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. Place the potatoes and turnips on a baking sheet in a single layer, drizzle them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast the vegetables for 20 minutes. Then, remove the pan from the oven, stir the veggies and continue roasting for 20 minutes longer. The potatoes and turnips will be tender and lightly golden brown when finished.
  3. Transfer the veggies to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Whip the potatoes on medium speed until creamy, but so you still have some chunks.
