  • 4 Idaho Potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon sumac
  • ½ teaspoon dried mint
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Boil potatoes until fork tender ,about 20 minutes.
  • Once the potatoes have cooled, peel off the skin using your hands or you can run the hot potatoes under cool water and peel.
  • Slice the potato in half vertically, then cut into cubes.
  • Drizzle with olive oil, sumac, garlic powder, dried mind, salt and black pepper.


  • You can use any type of potatoes in this recipe, but I like to use Idaho/ Russet/ Yukon/ Golden potatoes. They have a creamy texture that isn't too starchy or waxy.
  • Leftovers: If you have any of these boiled garlic potatoes left, store them in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
