Roasted Potatoes & Parsnips with Herbs

Fragrant herbs add a bright touch to these roasted vegetables.

Ingredients:
1 pound Huckleberry Gold potatoes
1½ pounds parsnips
1 yellow onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley and thyme
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Combine all the fingerling potatoes, onions and parsnips in a large bowl, tossing with the olive oil to coat. Season generously with salt and pepper. Arrange potato mixture on a foil-lined jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until potatoes and parsnips are tender and browned in spots, turning after 15 minutes. Remove from the oven.

3. Garnish with the fresh-chopped herbs before serving.

German Potato Salad

This ultra-flavorful and satisfying side dish is best served warm.

Ingredients:
1½ pounds baby red fingerling potatoes, washed and cubed into 1-inch pieces (no need to peel)
8 bacon slices, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup chicken stock
¼ cup apple cider vinegar, or F&L apple cider vinaigrette
Fresh chives, minced
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt

Method:
1. Bring a medium-sized pot of water seasoned generously with salt, to a boil. Toss in the potatoes and reduce to a simmer, cooking until the potatoes are just barely fork tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and reserve the potatoes.

2. Coat a large sauté pan lightly with olive oil. Toss in the bacon and bring to medium heat. When the bacon is getting brown and crispy, toss in the onions and cook until they are very soft and aromatic, 7 to 8 minutes ; add the garlic and cook until soft but not browned

3. Add the stock and vinegar. Toss in the cooked potatoes while they are still warm; mix together and cook until the liquid has absorbed into the potatoes. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Garnish with chives and parsley and serve warm or at room temperature.

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes, Chile Peppers & Onions

These easy roasted veggies are a great brunch side dish. (Or, try topping a hearty serving with a poached egg for a satisfying entrée.)

Ingredients:
2 pounds fingerling potatoes, washed and sliced into halves (if smaller) or quarters (if large)
3-4 Chimayó chile peppers, seeded and cut into large chunks
1 sweet onion, or 4 Tropea onions, peeled and sliced into large chunks
2 tablespoons olive or grapeseed oil
½ teaspoon sweet paprika (optional)
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Freshly-chopped parsley

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 425°. Place potatoes, peppers and onions in a baking dish large enough for vegetables to spread out into a single layer. (Don’t crowd, or the vegetables won’t have a chance to crisp and brown. If necessary, divide the vegetables onto two baking sheets.) Add oil and paprika and season generously with salt and pepper, toss all evenly to coat.

2. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring once or two during roasting, until potatoes are pierced easily with a fork. Remove from the oven, drizzle with about a teaspoon of olive oil and garnish with the fresh parsley.
