What You Need
There aren’t many ingredients in this simple recipe, but the motto here is: you don’t need many, when you have the right ones. Here’s what you need:
Potatoes. Just regular potatoes. I was super lucky to get some of the first potatoes in this year and they were so good. Whenever I see those super small potatoes I always remember how my grandma used to just pop them into a large pan with a lot of hot oil and fry them for a few minutes until done when I was a kid. One of my favorite meals as a kid. Potatoes have a bad rep because of their high glycemic index, but they’re actually pretty healthy and a very good source nutrients like potassium, folate and vitamin B6.
Yogurt. Go for your favorite plain probiotic yogurt. If you’re dairy-free, unflavored dairy-free yogurt could work as well, but haven’t tried it.
Fresh dill. You could also use fresh parsley or mint for this recipe, but if you enjoy dill – it’s the best choice for this recipe. Like all herbs, dill is super healthy and packed with antioxidants that help to protect your body from chronic disease like cancer, autoimmune disease or cardiovascular disease.
Garlic. The one you should definitely not skip! Potatoes and garlic are such a great couple…Consuming garlic on a regular basis is great for your overall health, as it has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and cholesterol-lowering properties.
Salt. Another one to not skip, a pinch of salt is important to bring out the flavors!
How To Make Potatoes With Yogurt Garlic Sauce
The first thing you do is wash and peel the potatoes if you’re not using organic potatoes. You wouldn’t believe the things “they” use on potatoes, so stay safe – wash and peel.
Cut the potatoes in halves or quarters (if very large) and add to a pot with boiling water. They should be tender after 10-15 minutes of boiling. Then take off the heat, discard the hot water (pour in some cold to even the temperature out) and add more cold water to the pot with the potatoes to let them cool off (this should take about 10 minutes).
Once cool, cut the potatoes into wedges. Grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper and grease, then arrange potatoes in a single layer. Sprinkle salt and spray gently or brush with olive oil. Bake the potatoes for about 10 more minutes.
You can use this time to make the yogurt sauce. It’s super easy! Like you just need a fork, bowl, yogurt, minced garlic, thinly chopped dill and some salt. Add all that to a bowl, mix it and it’s done!
Once the potatoes are done, let cool off for 2-3 minutes and start dipping into the yogurt garlic sauce, it’s delicious!

Can You Use Other Types Of Potatoes?
Yes, you can use other types of potatoes too, but the result will of course vary. Go for the type of potato you like! If you use sweet potatoes, you do not need to boil them before baking – they roast pretty quickly!
