Lemon Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

Morgan Shepard

Roasted potatoes are always a safe bet when you are in charge of bringing the side dish. The best part about these potatoes is the prep time is only a few minutes. The hardest part is mincing the garlic! The hints of lemon and rosemary that come with each bite are the perfect addition to your next summer dish. 

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds red potatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons Villa Gabriella Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves
  • 1 sprigs rosemary 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray
  2. Place potatoes in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Add olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and rosemary; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Gently toss to combine. 
  3. Place into oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Stir in butter until melted, about 1 minute. 
  4. Serve immediately, garnished wit lemon zest, parsley and rosemary, if desired.

This olive oil parmesan grilled corn will be a perfect addition to your 4th of July BBQ! We used "Fit Foodie Finds" recipe and used our Villa Gabriella Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Ingredients

  • 4 ears of corn

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  • Preheat grill to 400ºF
  • Prep corn by shucking and place aside
  • Make your olive oil parmesan marinade by mixing together parmesan cheese, olive oil, dried basil, and garlic powder
  • Next, rub corn with marinade. Wrap in aluminum foil, so that they can properly steam/cook on the grill
  • Place aluminum foil pack on grill for 30 minutes, or until corn is cooked all the way through

What's In Season

Morgan Shepard

Melons in March, Nectarines in November?? 

Ever wonder why strawberries don’t taste as good in December as in June? Why corn on the cob is less appetizing in January than July? Many fruits & vegetables are transported, processed, treated & globally distributed +1,000 miles away from where they are grown, arriving to market “out of season.” When we enjoy spring/summer’s bounty of fresh fruits & seasonal vegetables we promote local farmers’ markets, community supported agriculture-CSA’s, urban gardens & on site family run farms. To learn more about sustainable food systems & download a free seasonal fruit & veggie guide in your state visit http://www.sustainabletable.org/seasonalfoodguide/
