I receive e-mails from Vegetarian Times, and they recently had one with different oven-roasted potato recipes. I read one and thought, "I have potatoes. I have olive oil. I have kosher salt. I have black pepper. Why not?"
They were... fine. I think they need to have more spice on them, and they need to be eaten more promptly after being removed from the oven. It was a beautiful day (the only beautiful day in decades--it's rainy and sad again today) when I made these, so we decided to cook asparagus and burgers--meat and non-meat--on the grill as well. The timing could have been done better.
Anyway, they did turn out better than the sweet potato fries I tried shortly after becoming a vegetarian. That recipe had said that you couldn't use too much black pepper. That recipe was wrong.
This is something I may try again. I'm really ready for another big win on the Recipe Resolution front.
