Roasting vegetables is the best way to create a quick and easy side dish. These Roasted Garlic Potatoes are very easy to make and only require 4 simple ingredients, all of which you probably have on hand.

You can’t go wrong with crunchy, tender, oven roasted potatoes. Tender on the inside with a nice crisp crunch on the outside. To give the potatoes even more flavor I served them with a drizzle of spicy horseradish aioli.

These roasted potatoes are tossed in olive oil and garlic. When they come out of the oven chopped parsley is sprinkled on top. They are drizzled with a creamy 3 ingredient horseradish aioli.

One of the secrets to this recipe is to cook the potatoes at a high temperature. This ensures the crunchy golden brown exterior.

This method for roasting works for any type of potato although red potatoes are my favorite.
