  • 2-2 ½ pounds (about 4 large) thin skinned Potatoes (New, Red, etc)
  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoon dried Lavender designated for culinary use
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees*.
  • Scrub potatoes, cut out any bad spots and cut into bite-sized pieces. Do not peel.
  • Toss in a bowl with olive oil. When coated with the olive oil, add lavender, salt and pepper.
  • Spread into a single layer in a roasting pan or on a baking sheet. Place in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring part way through to ensure even browning. Potatoes are done then soft inside to the bite.



I have varied the oven temperature up to 400 degrees to allow the potatoes to cook at the same time as a chicken roasting. When doing so, I check more often to ensure browning is happening evenly and they do not overcook. Cooking time is reduced at a higher temperature so keep checking!
