 The Best Instant Pot Herbed Garlic Roasted Yellow Potatoes

 

  • Air fry at 400°F (200°C) for about 20-25 minutes. However, the exact cooking time can vary depending on several factors, including the size of your potato halves, the specific model of your Instant Pot with the air fryer lid, and how crispy you prefer your potatoes.

  • Place the Instant Pot air fryer basket in the Instant Pot and preheat the air fryer lid to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.

  • In a large bowl, combine the halved yellow potatoes, olive oil, minced garlic, dried rosemary, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Toss everything together until the potatoes are evenly coated with the seasonings.

  • Once the air fryer lid is preheated, carefully place the seasoned potatoes in the air fryer basket in a single layer.

  • Close the air fryer lid and set the Instant Pot to air fry at 400°F (200°C) for 20-25 minutes. Check the potatoes periodically and shake the basket for even cooking.

  • Air fry the potatoes until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The exact cooking time may vary depending on your Instant Pot model and the size of the potatoes.

  • Garnish with fresh parsley for added flavor and presentation (optional).

  • Serve your air-fried Herbed Garlic Roasted Yellow Potatoes as a delightful side dish for your meal. Enjoy!

Using the Instant Pot with the air fryer lid allows you to achieve crispy roasted potatoes without using the oven. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time as needed to achieve the desired level of crispiness. (Oven Baked Herbed Garlic Roasted Yellow Potatoes Below)

How To Make Oven Baked Herbed Garlic Roasted Yellow Potatoes

Herbed Garlic Roasted Yellow Potatoes "Tips"

Choose the Right Potatoes:

  • opt for yellow or Yukon Gold potatoes as they have a creamy texture and a naturally buttery flavor that works well for roasting.

Even Sizing:

  • Try to cut the potato halves as evenly as possible. This ensures that they cook uniformly, resulting in consistent crispiness.

Preheat the Air Fryer Lid: If using the Instant Pot with an air fryer lid, make sure to preheat it as directed in the recipe. Preheating helps achieve that desired crispiness.

Use Fresh Herbs:

  • If available, fresh rosemary and thyme can provide a more vibrant flavor compared to dried herbs. Just remember to adjust the quantities as fresh herbs tend to be more potent. I have done this recipe both ways and both are delicious! If all you have is dried, use them.

Shake the Basket:

  • During air frying, give the basket a gentle shake or stir the potatoes occasionally to ensure even cooking and browning.

Adjust Cooking Time:

  • Keep an eye on the potatoes as they cook. Cooking times can vary depending on your specific equipment and the size of the potato halves. Adjust the cooking time if needed to achieve your preferred level of crispiness.

  • Don't Overcrowd: If making a larger batch, consider cooking the potatoes in batches to avoid overcrowding the air fryer basket, which can impact their crispiness.

Serve Promptly:

  • Roasted potatoes are best enjoyed right after cooking when they are at their crispiest. Serve them promptly to savor the full flavor and texture.

Customize Seasonings:

  • Feel free to customize the seasonings to your taste. You can add a pinch of paprika or Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.

Garnish Creatively:

  • Fresh parsley isn't the only option for garnish. Experiment with other fresh herbs or a drizzle of balsamic reduction for added visual appeal and flavor.

Storage:

  • If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. While they may lose some crispiness upon reheating, they can still be delicious.

Enjoy making and savoring these Herbed Garlic Roasted Yellow Potatoes!
