Easy and colorful fresh fingerling potatoes, peppers, and onions with garlic and thyme make a fantastic side dish for any entree.
Thank you to Melissa’s produce and Le Creuset for sponsoring this post. I received product to create and display the recipe. All opinions are my own.
I love potatoes and use fingerling potatoes quite often. You can probably discern that they are called fingerlings because they look like fingers.
They have a classic potato flavor that is earthy, nutty, and buttery. Because they are so small they are not ideal for mashing but they are perfect for roasting.
While you can roast them on their own and they are perfectly delicious, take them to another level by adding red and yellow pepper, onions, and garlic. Even though I have a plethora of rosemary in my garden, I chose to use thyme in this recipe. Either would be yummy.
I used canola oil, basically because my family prefers it over olive oil, but you could use olive oil if you prefer. Sometimes a neutral oil is best to bring out other flavors in the dish. Try it both ways so you know what you like.
Serve this potato dish alongside any meal you’d like – beef, chicken, fish, pork, or lamb.
