Equipment

Ingredients 

Potatoes

  • 2 pounds yellow potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Herb Vinaigrette

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro and parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, add the potatoes and a pinch of sea salt. Add water until the potatoes are fully covered.
  • Bring the water to a boil and boil the potatoes for 20-25 minutes until fork tender. Drain the water.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the potatoes on a plate or sheet pan. Using a mug, cup or potato masher, gently smash each potato to a ½ inch thick.
  • Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil, salt, black pepper and garlic powder.
  • Add the potatoes to your air fryer in a single layer (you may need to cook in batches) and cook for 12 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, make your herb vinaigrette by combining all of the ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Flip the potatoes and cook for another 5 minutes until golden and crispy.
  • Serve topped with the vinaigrette and enjoy!
