Tasteful Selections contacted me and asked if I'd be willing to try their small colorful potatoes. "Of course!" I said. I am NOT one to turn down potatoes, ESPECIALLY while pregnant. 😉 (Have totally been craving potatoes)
I was excited to get my two bags in the mail the other day and decided to make a simple roasted dish with them. The colors were amazing. There were red, yellow, and my favorite, purple! Each one no more than and inch or two in diameter.
I halved them to cut down on cooking time and presented the husband and the toddler with their rainbow plates. Now... of all the complaints I have of the husband, NOT being a true potato man is my biggest gripe. If it was up to him potatoes would only come in 1 of 2 ways: baked and mashed. That's it. He doesn't even like HASHBROWNS!! I mean who doesn't like a good hash. Ugh. Anyway, before this turns into a bitch session I shall move on. He ate all the potatoes except one purple one and seemed unimpressed. Me, on the other hand, could eat these things every day for the rest of my life and be happy! They were amazing! Creamy, roasted goodness. The toddler even thought so. He was a little hesitant at first (the purple ones were intimidating) and then continued to eat the whole serving without complaint.
Here's what I did...
- 450 grams of small colorful potatoes halved (package said 148 was a serving and I didn't want to make more than 3 in fear I would not stop eating them. I was glad I made this decision. 😉
- 4 carrots, cut in chunks
- 1 small onion, chopped small
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary (a sprinkle of dry would work great too)
- Kosher Salt
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Toss everything together in a bowl using a liberal amount of kosher salt. I think I used at least 3 pinches from my bowl. Pour all the ingredients in a baking dish and bake for 45-50 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender. I tossed and stirred 3 times during cooking.
Here's a little before...
Seriously. The best potatoes EVER! You could always use "regular" sized potatoes and quarter them, BUT if you would like to try the Tasteful Selection small colorful variety why, all you need to do is leave a comment and tell me what your favorite potato dish is! I'll pick a random commentor next Wednesday to sample these fabulous potatoes.
As for nutritional information, I made exactly 3 servings so that's how I'm calculating. You can totally double, triple, quadruple this recipe for more. I wouldn't up the oil too, too much. I could have even used a little less for this batch.
