Lazy Day Dish II: Rosemary potatoes

Easy, healthy recipes: Lazy Day Rosemary potatoes
I had a long post all written out for today. I even got up at 4.30 in the morning to do it. But then! The Toddler woke up too early, which was fine at first. We had some cuddles, enjoyed each other's company and hung out. Sure, I can definitely step away from the computer to give my sidekick some attention! Until it happened... the temper tantrum from hell. The child went crazy on me and we headed into that dreaded territory - foot stomping, belly flopin', full on screaming temper tantrum! For about half an hour. Don't worry though! The crisis has now been contained, and the Toddler is down for a much needed nap. I hope when he wakes up, my sweet little guy will be back and that that crazy pants monster stays away! 

I also don't feel like finishing off anything on my to do list anymore. It's only 9.25 in the morning though, so maybe I'll have time. Instead, I want to finally share this easy peasy recipe that's been sitting in my draft folder for a while. It's so, so easy that I've been contemplating about whether or not I should share. I mean, can I really call it a recipe? 

Yea, I'm definitely going to ... Here's what I'm in the mood for today: 

Easy Rosemary Potatoes


  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 green onions 
  • 1 teaspoon paprika powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound (half a kilo) of small potatoes of choice 
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil for pan frying


  • Boil potatoes until they are almost soft, drain
  • In a skillet, heat the oil 
  • Add potatoes 
  • Pan fry for several minutes on medium-high heat for about seven to ten minutes. Make sure to stir often so they don't burn.
  • Add the rest of your ingredients. Pan fry for another two minutes. 
  • Done 

Version II 

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 395 degrees Fahrenheit  
  • Combine the ingredients (sans green onion) in a bowl
  • Mix well 
  • Place in an oven safe dish - something without high sides 
  • Roast for about 20-35 minutes. Make sure to turn every ten minutes so they are evenly roasted. 
  • In the last three minutes, add some finely chopped green onion 

We're loving on easy and healthy recipes around here! I love how few ingredients this one has, but that it's still bursting with flavah! If you want to add some kick to it, sprinkle with some chili flakes, or pan fry some bacon to sprinkle on top!
