I had a bit of leftover chimichurri, so I decided to use it to dress my potatoes. The chimichurri is clean tasting and has a nice tartness to it (Spanish version of salt and vinegar maybe?). They are so good, you could eat them by themselves. You could also omit the chimichurri completely and just eat the oven fries plain. How ever you'd like.
Oven Fries w/ Chimichurri
Prep Time: < 5 minutes
- 1 lb organic red potatoes, cut into fries or 1/4 inch thick pieces
- 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp of chimichurri
Preheat oven to 400F.
Toss the red potatoes with the olive oil. Coat well. Spread the potatoes out evenly on a rimmed cookie sheet.
Transfer the cookie sheet to the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes or golden brown. Make sure to toss the potatoes a few times while they are baking, so all sides are cooked well.
Once the potatoes are thoroughly cooked, salt and pepper to taste. Then toss the potatoes with the chimichurri in a bowl. Serve immediately.
