Hello potato lovers! Get a load on these super crispy Garlic Basil Smashed Potatoes! Flavourful and fun to make, these little babies are a perfect side dish for your parties or weeknight dinners.
You are in for a real treat with these Garlic Basil Smashed Potatoes. Crisp on the outside, tender creamy on the inside. The classic flavors of fresh basil and garlic in every bite make these taters so special. And the addition of sea salt takes it up another notch.
This recipe couldn’t be any simpler. Potatoes are first boiled in salted water. Then they are given a good massage with garlic basil paste. Now the most satisfying part – smashing them with the palm of your hands! A fork will work well too. Since they only need to be flattened, make sure they aren’t completely smashed!
While these potatoes are wonderful eaten on their own, you could serve them any dip of your choice. You can even sprinkle some cheese on top before roasting them and serve this with some sour cream on top. You can use any herb you like – thyme, rosemary, mint. Use butter instead of olive oil. The flavor and serving combinations here are only limited by your imagination.
So do give these delectable and healthy garlic basil smashed potatoes a go. You’ll be addicted to them in no time, I promise!
