Garden Herb Potatoes
This morning the boys and I were hanging out with my new friend, Rachel, and she gave me some herbs from her garden! I asked her what some of their favorite ways are to eat fresh rosemary and thyme and she mentioned they love theirs with potatoes. I just kept adding other things for more color and this dish evolved. 😉 I posted a pic on Instagram and had several requests for the recipe so I wanted to go ahead and post it here! Several of y’all commented on how you grow your own herbs! I’m so inspired!

Serves 4-6 adults
8 medium potatoes, washed & scrubbed
2 cups baby carrots
1 onion, peeled & sliced
1/2 lemon, washed & sliced
3 T. garlic, minced
salt & pepper
Add potatoes, carrots & onions to casserole dish. Add a little water to the pan and drizzle with olive oil. Lay lemon slices on top and sprinkle with herbs and minced garlic. Cover with foil and bake at 400 degrees for about 1 hour, or until potatoes are soft. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve potatoes with the cooked veggies, grated cheese, sour cream and whatever else you like on top of your baked potatoes (we love jalapeños and hot sauce too!). 😉

Well, I do like to grow mint and use it in salads and of course tea!
We live in south eastern Michigan, we tend to have 3-3.5 months of summer and warm weather…I grow thyme, basil, green onions, sage, garlic, lemon grass, and other types of veggies! We live in a subdivision and we get mostly sun ☀️ in our backyard for most of the day. Our herbs grow nicely and amazingly grow back every year even if we have a harsh winter!
Jill, try cutting up the potatoes next time you make this dish. They’ll absorb the juices better, get done more in line with the carrots and be better overall. Enjoy!
Good idea! I guess I was just going for baked potatoes initially and then kept adding other stuff. 😉
Jill, will you be getting back to your monthly update posts when you get settled into the new house? There hasn’t been one since the February update! <3
Make Bruschetta or add fresh thyme to anything w lemon. It has a similar flavor profile. I have made lemon shortbread and added thyme and it was awesome!!! I use fresh herbs alot. Spanikopita is a great one. It uses a ton of fresh parsley and a bit of fresh dill. So,so beyond good!!! The recipe I have is fantastic. I made it up and finally got it perfect. Lol
i grow my own herbs each spring/summer! my husband had built me a square foot garden at our first house that worked GREAT for herbs. i particularly loved growing sweet mint which was incredible to make your own tea with! i also liked to put it in my water. the other thing i used a lot of was lavender. i would cut pieces and hang it in the shower. as far as herbs for food goes i also dried my parsley, rosemary, thyme, and basil. it still smells fresh in my jars a year later!! we also would pick the basil pieces off and put it between slices of tomato and mozzarella on a skewer and grill it and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegarette like a caprese salad!
i hope you decide to do an herb garden! they’re so fun and easy!
