Potatoes are roasted with olive oil and za’atar in this easy and flavorful vegetarian side dish recipe.
Every spring I find myself looking for new, easy side dish recipes. Whether it’s to cook for our Passover Seder or to bring for an Easter dinner side dish, you really can never have too many healthy side dish recipes.
These creamy blushing belle potatoes from The Little Potato Company are tossed in extra virgin olive oil then sprinkled with za’atar, salt and pepper. If you haven’t tried za’atar yet, it’s my go-to Lebanese spice mixture filled with sumac, sesame seeds, oregano and other herbs.
The best part? This vegetarian side dish is made with just five simple ingredients and is ready in 20 minutes.
Your fork is waiting.
