There is nothing more comforting than taking a bite into crispy-skinned roasted potatoes only to find light, fluffy and creamy insides ready to melt in your mouth.
Roasted potatoes typically take 30-45 minutes in a hot oven and requires careful watching and flipping while baking.
This recipe provides you with a quick and easy method to making the perfect herb roasted potatoes by using the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
After a few minutes on saute mode, just close the lid and forget about them. In less than 20 minutes, your potatoes will be ready to be served.
You can use whatever herbs that you like to flavor your roasted potatoes. We prefer to use thyme as our main herb for these potatoes. We are lucky enough to have it in our herb garden so it is readily available. However, you could also use rosemary, oregano, whatever you prefer!
You could also use dried herbs if you don’t have a supply of fresh. Just add a sprinkle to your potatoes before adding the stock.
And if you don’t have an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker (oh, but you would love it so much), you can bake them in the oven. Just preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and cook for 45 minutes, flipping 1-2 times during the cooking process.
To decrease the oven cooking time you could quarter your potatoes and bake for 30-35 minutes.
