Garlic and Lemon Smashed Potatoes
Fabulously garlicky smashed potatoes - an easy and delicious side dish.
- 1.5 pounds little potatoes
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Garlic powder to taste
- Smoked paprika to taste
- Olive oil to taste
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 2-3 cloves minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
- Chives to taste
Preheat oven to 425F. Move the rack to the middle position.
Boil the potatoes for 15 minutes. Drain them and place them on a baking sheet. Gently "smash" them down with a fork. Squeeze lemon juice over each potato, then lightly sprinkle each potato with salt & pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika. Drizzle each potato with a little bit of olive oil. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the yogurt by mixing the minced garlic with the Greek yogurt. Chop the parsley and snip the chives (love my kitchen shears for this!).
Take the potatoes out of the oven and top them with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Sprinkle on the chives, parsley, and add an extra drizzle of olive oil. Serve immediately.
- As an appetizer, this would easily serve 6 people if you had other appetizers around. For a reasonably portioned side dish, this would work for 4 people.
