Tips and Tricks for Roasted Honey Gold Potatoes
Start By Prepping Your Ingredients
Preparing the herbs is as easy as removing the rosemary and thyme from their stems and dicing them. As for the potatoes, give them a good rinse, dry them, and chop them into four equal parts. While it’s not necessary to achieve perfect uniformity, try to make them as equal in size as possible for even roasting.
Coat Your Potatoes
Once the potatoes are chopped, spread them out on a baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle them with olive oil, ensuring they are fully coated. Some oil may be left behind on the tray when you transfer the potatoes to a serving plate.
Next, sprinkle the potatoes with salt, pepper, chopped rosemary, and thyme. Evenly distribute the seasonings over the potatoes, making sure every wedge receives a flavorful touch.
Toss and Roast!
Using clean hands, toss the potatoes in the oil and seasonings until each wedge is evenly coated. If you prefer, a large serving spoon can be used instead. Once the potatoes are coated, spread them back out on the baking sheet, ensuring they form a single layer without overlapping.
The final step is to roast the potatoes on the top rack of your oven at 425°F (220°C) for 30-35 minutes, tossing them halfway through. They are ready when they achieve a beautiful golden-brown hue.
Green tip: You can line your baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean-up, but it’s not necessary due to the oil in the recipe.

These versatile vegan side dishes complement any and everything! For a well-rounded meal, try pairing them with Roasted Garlic Salmon for Two, purple asparagus, roasted carrots, and top it all off with Hearty Mushroom Gravy.

Storing and Reheating Roasted Potatoes

To reheat, place the potatoes in the oven at 400°F (200°C) for 10-15 minutes, or until they regain their crispy texture. If reheating from frozen, allow them to thaw in the fridge overnight first.
