Roasted Baby Potatoes with Soy, Butter and Parsley

I needed a good side dish to accompany a roasted pork tenderloin and I was craving potatoes. I par boiled them then tossed them in a bit of soy sauce, butter, pepper and parsley then roasted them until they were soft and tender. They were fantastic! I love the flavor of soy sauce and butter on rice, vegetables or potatoes. The potatoes were gone very quickly and everyone raved about them. They pair nicely with pork, chicken, fish or beef. The little potatoes are so simple to make, delicious to eat and quick to clean up.

  • 10-15 Dutch baby potatoes
  • 2-3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (divided)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Boil a large pot of water and boil the potatoes for 4-5 minutes. Remove from water and let cool. Once cooled, slice in half and combine soy sauce, butter, olive oil, black pepper and 1/2 of the parsley. Mix thoroughly and place in a baking dish that has been sprayed with olive oil cooking spray. Place in oven and roast for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and taste, re season with sea salt and cracked pepper if needed. Enjoy.

    Hi there, congrats of being featured in the FFF! I have seen a similar way of preparing the new potatoes like this with soy by a Japanese woman, I now believe soy and potatoes can taste good together : ) Same as you I like cooking, blogging and photography and then I combined all these interests and have my foodblog : )

    Mmm, a new reason for me to stop at our farmers market this week. What a simple combination with great results–I think I will be inspired and do something like this but with olive oil. I even have parsley growing on my deck and climbing over itself to be used! Thanks for the idea.

    potatoes with parsley (parsleyed potatoes?) is one of my favorites. yours appear to be much more tasty than what i was served in the cafeteria in school. i still liked those, so i know i’d love these.
