  • 1 1/2 lb purple potatoes (washed and scrubbed; unpeeled)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the whole purple potatoes in medium pot, and fill with water until just submerged. Bring to a boil, then set a timer for 5 minutes (for small/medium potatoes; if using large potatoes, use 8 minutes).
  • When the timer goes off, the potatoes should be just barely tender when poked with a fork – there should still be some resistance. Carefully remove the potatoes from the boiling water and dry. Chop into 1-inch pieces, leaving the skin on.
  • Place the chopped potatoes in a bowl and add the olive oil, dried rosemary, salt, garlic powder, and dried thyme. Toss potatoes well to equally coat in oil and seasonings.
  • Spread the potatoes onto a baking sheet and place in the oven. Cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring once at the 15-minute mark, until potatoes are fully cooked (crisp on the outside and soft on the inside). Let cool for a few minutes then enjoy!
