Parmentier potatoes recipe
This is my take on this French potato delicacy, I love my roast potatoes but I am sure you can agree it takes time to cook to perfection. When time is of the essence, I opt for cubed potatoes instead as they cook half the time a traditional roasted spud would.
In case you are wondering why give this fancy name to herby diced potatoes, well, the potato dish is of French origin. Parmentier potatoes was named after a man called Antoine-Augustin Parmentier for promoting potatoes as a good source of food for human across France and Europe.
This is amongst many other great things he was known for at his time. There are other versions to this recipe too.
I don’t only make cubed potatoes as a side dish, I make them for as the star dish for breakfast as well. Another alternative to serving bread with our full English breakfast, It makes the breakfast special.
When I serve it with roast or any other dish, I like the illusion it creates as you think you have plenty spud on your plate and that would make you eat less.
Cubed or diced potatoes are so easy and simple to make, the potatoes are cut to bite sizes, parboiled and tossed in some olive oil and garlic, rosemary or other herbs of choice and oven roasted until crispy and golden on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
It is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. Let me show you how to make it with this easy step-by-step guide.

Potatoes: I use red potatoes, but you can use any other types of potatoes that are good for baking. E.g. Maris piper, kind Edward, Yukon gold, russet potatoes and the likes
Garlic granules: I used this over fresh garlic as the fresh ones tend to burn which makes it, not always pleasant to eat at all
Salt: you need this for boiling the potatoes
Red pepper flakes: not a must but recommended if want that little bit of kick for the dish.
Olive oil: any other flavourless or mild cooking oil would work for this recipe. Substitute with melted butter
