September is Potato Month. How will you celebrate? At Food and Health Communications, we'll be whipping up some of these amazing herb and garlic roasted potatoes. They're a simple and tasty side dish that lend themselves well to all kinds of variation!


  • 1 and 1/2 pounds red potatoes, washed and cut into chunks
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 tsp chopped rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Toss the potatoes with the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Pour potato mixture into a baking pan and arrange in a single layer. Cover pan with foil and return it to the oven.
  4. Roast until potatoes are very tender, about 1 hour. Serve hot.

Chef's Tips:

Feel free to experiment with different kinds of complimentary herbs. If you don't have any thyme, try basil. No oregano? No problem! Try parsley for a milder flavor profile, or sage for a whole different take on the matter. Adjust the seasonings until you have an herb blend that works for you.
