Roasted Purple Potatoes with Sage and Chives

This is a simple side dish that’s beautiful to look at and easy to make.  I love purple potatoes.  What an easy way to elevate a dish to a whole new level!

When it comes to vegetables, roasting is my favorite way to go.  It really brings out their natural flavors, while adding a nice caramelized crunch to the outside.


  • purple potatoes
  • olive oil
  • fresh chives
  • dried sage


  1. Preheat your oven to 425.
  2. Wash, halve and then quarter the potatoes.
  3. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Roast for approximately 30 minutes, periodically moving the potatoes around for even browning and to prevent sticking.
  5. While the potatoes are cooking, chop up your chives with a good sharp knife.
  6. Toss the finished potatoes with the chives, a generous helping of dried sage and some additional salt.
