Preheat oven to 500 F.
Meanwhile, wash fingerling potatoes, and cut into pieces if they are large (or leave as whole potatoes).
Put the potatoes on a pan, and add:
crushed or diced garlic
Optional: rosemary, sage, other spices/herbs
Stick in oven, and decrease temperature to 425. Roast for about 20 minutes. Delicious with other veggies or with fish or steak.
