Roasted tarragon potatoes are a fantastic side for any dish! I have had it as a side with chicken, beef, pork and fish and they all work well; and best of all, it is super simple to make!
I love baby potatoes and at Costco I always grab a bag of potatoes by The Little Potato Company. Baby potatoes are the perfect potatoes to use for this recipe, but you can use any potato you want!
Tarragon is a herb that has a fennel or licorice flavour. When I looked in The Flavor Bible it said that it worked well with potatoes so that’s where the inspiration for tarragon potatoes came from.
I am really loving the Flavor Bible, by the way! It is such a good resource that I find myself constantly referring to! I also learned in the book that you should only chop tarragon three times, instead of finely chopping it, otherwise it oxidizes and will make the herb taste bad.
Wash and chop potatoes into bite sized pieces. I like to leave the skins on for extra colour and nutrients, but they can be peeled if you prefer your potatoes that way. Place the potatoes in a bowl and add in the olive oil, salt, pepper and chopped tarragon. Stir well ensuring the potatoes are coated evenly.
Place potatoes in a casserole dish and roast in the oven at 400 degrees F for 35 – 40 minutes. Stir the potatoes a couple of times while roasting. The potatoes are done when you can pierce a fork through them easily and they are a nice golden brown.
Once done, add more fresh chopped tarragon and serve these amazing tarragon potatoes as a side dish to your favourite main meal! Enjoy!
