Directions 6 steps | 35 Minutes

Step 1

Prep your potatoes. Cut large potatoes into quarters and small potatoes into halves.

Step 2

Bring a pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Toss in the potatoes and boil until fork-tender. Strain the potatoes and set aside.

Step 3

While potatoes are cooking, heat a cast iron pan on medium-high heat. Add two tablespoons of avocado oil and toss in the sliced onions. Cook onions until soft and translucent.

Step 4

Once the onions are cooked, lower the heat to medium and add the remaining two tablespoons of avocado oil and the potatoes.

Step 5

Gently mix in the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir the potatoes every few minutes until you achieve a crispy golden crust. (See notes)

Step 6

Serve warm. Enjoy!


Notes:

  • To develop a crispy golden crust, it is important to avoid over-stirring the potatoes. 
  • For a complete meal, pair your potatoes with a protein and greens.
