Garlic Sauce

  • 1 head garlic peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon parsley chopped
  • 1/4 cup water

Roasted Potatoes

  • 6 large potatoes peeled and cleaned
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper or to taste
  • 4 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  • Put the garlic and salt in a mortar and pestle and crush the garlic until it becomes a paste. Add the oil, parsley and water to the garlic and mix well. Set aside.
  • Cut up the potatoes into wedges or cubes. Transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet, season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and add half of the garlic sauce over them. Toss them well then cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes covered. After 30 minutes remove the aluminum foil and bake for another 30 minutes until they turn crispy and golden brown.
  • Before serving, pour garlic sauce over the hot potatoes or use the sauce as a dip.


I recommend using fresh garlic in this recipe versus the pre-minced jars of garlic.
Store these potatoes in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. Reheat them in the oven at 400F in a skillet or on a sheet pan covered with foil. Bake for 5-10 minutes, then remove the foil and cook for another 5 minutes.
These potatoes will last 10-12 months in the freezer. Bake in a skillet or sheet pan covered in foil at 400F for 15 minutes, then remove the foil and cook for another 5 minutes.
You can store this sauce for up to 2 weeks sealed in an airtight container or jar in the fridge. You can also freeze this sauce! Just place it in an airtight container and it will keep for 2 - 3 months, just be sure to thaw it out in the fridge overnight and whisk well to reincorporate as it will have likely separated.
