Air Fryer Herb Potatoes

These 'Air Fryer Herb Potatoes' are so easy to make and are simply delicious. They taste great served plain or dipped in your favorite sauce. For todays version, I placed them on a salad with a drizzle of vegan ranch dressing.


This recipe came after some trial and error. In the end, it was the simplest combination of ingredients that won.  Fresh herbs make all the difference here. I have used dried in a pinch, but the flavor wasn't quite the same.


My potato of choice is 'Yukon Gold', but you could use 'Red Potatoes' or 'Russetts'. An essential part of the potatoes is to steam them first - until just cooked through. I will steam a batch of potatoes and refrigerate them to use throughout the week.


I like to use a layer of parchment paper in my air fryer, but this is just a personal preference. Some air fryers circulate the air too strongly to use paper, as it will just blow around.


These potatoes have become a staple in our house and I hope yours as well.

Now, onto the recipe:

Air Fryer Herb Potatoes

  • 2 medium potatoes, washed - skins left on 
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh sage
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil

- Steam potatoes until just cooked through and cool. I steam a batch of potatoes and refrigerate them to use throughout the week. Once cool, slice into wedges or large fries and place in a medium bowl. Spritz the potatoes with avocado oil. Stir in sage, rosemary, onion powder and sea salt. Preheat the air fryer to 400°.  Place seasoned potato slices into air fryer in one layer. Cook for 7 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.

Saturday Sparks Link Party 338

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 338!

Starting off todays party with a glimpse into our world.


Our long driveway opens up into this field.

An old hay rake rests atop the hill - a whispered echo from the past.

We have come home to deer, turkeys, coyotes and the occasional bear here.

Each time we cross paths, they are surprised to see us.

And we are just as surprised to see them.

"Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."

Saturday Sparks Link Party 337

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 337!

Starting off todays party with a snapshot of our summer landscape.


Green fields and blue skies, a preserved memory of a season going by much too fast.

I have noticed a few leaves have already started to turn and I suspect fall will be here in short order.

As the years go by, the summer's seem shorter - the winter's longer.

"August rain:  the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time."
~ Sylvia Plath
