What potatoes are better for roasting?
All potatoes are good at baking. But, there are still varieties of potatoes that bake quicker and have a crispier and sweeter taste. For example Yukon gold or red potatoes have thin skin and more creamy flesh, thus offering you a gold/crispy roasted potato result. When you bake your potatoes, especially with herbs and garlic, the aroma in the kitchen is irresistible. So to quicker this process of baking one should choose the best potatoes that roast rapidly.
Are potatoes healthy?
Potatoes are considered a healthy veggie that is rich in Vitamin C, fibers, potassium but contains starch. It is a good carbohydrate food providing more energy than a cup of pasta. Also, you will feel a long time satiated when eating potatoes. However, this is not a point to only eat potatoes, because there are other veggies that are also healthy and should be introduced in the daily menu.
How do you roast potatoes?
Potatoes have some rules to leave delicious impressions. In a preheated oven at 190°C/375°F roast them. Before baking them, boil some minutes until a little soft, but not too much. They will have a nice and inviting golden/crispy texture that will instantly seduce. Boiling them is optional, but the process will be quicker and more lingering. I have tried both versions boiling and not boiling potatoes, but after boiling them the result is much more delicious and tastier.
