Roasted Herbed Two Potatoes

  • Yield 8 servings

This is a wonderful marriage of sweet potatoes and red potatoes.


4 or 5 medium red potatoes
3 or 4 medium sweet potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, or 1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon, or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cut the peeled or unpeeled potatoes into 1-inch pieces.  Spread the red potatoes in a 10×15-inch microwave-safe baking dish coated with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes or bake at 450F for 15 minutes.  Add the sweet potatoes to the dish.
  2. Mix the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil with the parsley, tarragon, red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper in a bowl.  Pour over the potatoes, mixing to coat well.  Roast at 450F for 45 to 60 minutes or until tender, stirring every 15 to 20 minutes to prevent sticking.
