Roasted fingerling Potatoes with Romesco Sauce

When fall arrives, we find our appetites begin to increase almost proportionally to the cold. Storing up for winter perhaps! One thing I find myself craving are earthy potatoes!  I love their heartiness and versatility, and most of all I love them roasted.

Roasting fingerling potatoes coaxes out their nutty, earthy flavor while enhancing their subtle sweetness. Because they are small, they roast quickly, especially when sliced in half lengthwise.

Roasting the fingerling potatoes gets them nice and crispy on the outside with an almost creamy buttery interior.

While they are roasting, the quick Romesco Sauce can be whipped up in literally 5 minutes.

Here I’ve used hazelnuts– but other nuts work well too, especially almonds.

Romesco Sauce if unfamiliar, hails from Catalonia, an area in Northern Spain. There are many versions, but most contain red peppers, tomatoes and nuts.

Romesco can be made spicy or kept mild. Traditionally it’s served with meat, chicken, fish or roasted vegetables. It can be swirled into soup for a burst of favor, or even tossed with pasta. Think of this as a roasted red pepper pesto of sorts – a  good one to have in your back pocket.

When the potatoes are done, toss them with the romesco sauce, adjust the salt and serve right away.

For added texture, sprinkle with crushed hazelnuts and a scattering of fresh herbs like thyme or sage.

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Romesco Sauce


Description

A simple tasty recipe for Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with a flavorful 5 minute Romesco Sauce, made w/ simple pantry ingredients you probably already have!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 ½ pounds fingerling potatoes ( or sub little reds or multi-colored)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  •  salt and cracked pepper

Romesco Sauce

Garnish- chopped thyme or Italian Parsley, and crushed toasted hazelnuts


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise ( or leave whole if very small) you want them about 3/4 inch thick.
  3. In a bowl, toss potatoes lightly with olive oil and generously season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread out on a parchment lined sheet pan (one layer, do not overlap) and roast in the hot oven 25-35 minutes or until fork-tender and golden.
  5. Make Romesco Sauce: Place all romesco ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until well combined, but not too smooth.Taste and adjust salt and spiciness.
  6. When potatoes are tender, place in a serving dish and toss with a few spoonfuls of romesco sauce, enough to coat well. Taste for salt, and adjust.
  7. Garnish with fresh herbs and toasted hazelnuts. Serve immediately.
  8. Save remaining romesco sauce in a jar- and cover with a layer of olive oil. Seal and store in the fridge for another use ( soups, wraps, eggs, etc)

Notes

You can sub toasted almonds for the hazelnuts if allergies.

Other potatoes work well here too, so feel free to sub. Little ones are best.

If bland, it probably needs salt. 😉

  1. I made this along with the braised cabbage recipe on this site. Both amazing! We served these two sides with salmon. Super scrumptious and easier than thought. I was a bit intimidated at first.

  2. Brought this dish to a potluck- everyone raved. thanks for another delicious recipe Sylvia. Keep them coming!
