Hasselback Potatoes (Gluten Free)



This is my version of this popular Swedish style roast potato dish. I pan infuse olive oil with curry powder, rosemary and garlic.






4 medium potatoes, washed and dried



1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil



4 clove garlic



2 sprigs rosemary



1/4 tsp turmeric



1/4 tsp cumin



1/2 tsp sea salt






Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan, add garlic and sauté for about a minute. Stir in turmeric, cumin, sea salt and rosemary.



Preheat oven 425 degrees and oil a baking sheet and set aside. Scrub potatoes leaving skin on. Place potatoes on a cutting board, cut thin vertical slices, making sure you are not cutting all the way through. Baste potatoes with seasoned oil and bake for 50-60 minutes or until potatoes are tender.






  1. The best way to cut these is by putting the potato in the bowl of a wooden spoon. Then you can’t cut all the way through.

  2. Yummy and I plan to make it, but maybe use less EVOO.

    The Hype: Olive oil will lower your “bad” LDL cholesterol. The Truth: Olive oil, in and of itself, does not lower LDL cholesterol. In just about every study showing that people lowered their LDL cholesterol levels after starting to use olive oil, including this latest study on extra virgin olive oil, the people used olive oil in place of other dietary fats, often saturated fats like butter, cheese, and fatty meats. Of course LDL is going to go down. You’ve gotten rid of the LDL-raising fats.

    The point is: It’s not the addition of olive oil that’s improving LDL cholesterol levels. It’s the subtraction of artery-clogging fats like saturated fats and trans fats. That’s precisely what the official health claim allowed by the Food and Drug Administration states. Here are the claim’s exact words: “Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating about 2 tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive oil. To achieve this possible benefit, olive oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day.” Unfortunately, what we usually hear in the media and see on olive oil bottles are only the words “heart healthy.”
