  • 1.5 pounds baby potatoes white or red
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon five spice powder (homemade five spice powder works better)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper , freshly ground
  • 6 big garlic cloves , minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced chive (or green onion for garnish)


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C (400 F).
  • Halve or quarter potatoes into even size pieces. Transfer into a big bowl. Add olive oil, salt, five spice powder, black pepper, and garlic. Toss until the potatoes are well coated.
  • Transfer the potatoes onto a baking sheet, and shake gently to spread to a single layer. Roast in the oven for 40 minutes to 1 hour, until browned and crisp. Shake the pan and flip the potatoes after 30 minutes to ensure even browning.
  • Toss potatoes with chives and serve hot.
