Here are how things normally go down around dinner time in my house. It always starts with a simple "What’s for dinner?" and unless the answer is pasta or tacos, it end with another simple question "with potatoes?". So to please the masses, I often make simple side dishes of roasted potatoes. Sometimes I just use olive oil, sometimes I mix in lot of garlic, sometimes there are other vegetables, and lately I have been making this Cajun version with a homemade spice blend and some green onions. It pairs great with roasted chicken or pork and you can make it as spicy as you like. For low carb and Paleo dieters, this recipe is delicious with sweet potatoes, butternut squash, turnips, rutabaga, or celery root.

* Need a quicker cooking method? Par cook the potatoes in the microwave or in boiling water until just tender. Then dry them off completely and following the instructions above. They will only need to roast for 20-25 minutes.
