Roasted Potatoes in Chinese Black Bean Sauce

Author: Taylor Holliday | The Mala Market | Cooking Sichuan in America



  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Cut potatoes into large bite-size pieces. Mix generously with black bean chili oil and salt and spread out evenly on a baking sheet.
  • Back at 400°F for 15 minutes, then stir to make sure potatoes aren't sticking to pan. Lower oven temperature to 375°F (190°C) and bake for another 25 to 30 minutes, stirring once, until lightly browned and crispy.
  • Remove to a bowl and stir in more black bean chili oil to taste before serving.


Substitute cauliflower for an equally delicious dish using the exact same procedure.
