Side dish

Roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus

Whenever I buy vegetables I think of recipes that I can prepare with asparagus. So I tried using asparagus along with fingerling potatoes and string beans and came up with a very simple and healthy recipe. I got this from another blog (which I’ve forgotten!) but have modified it to make it more flavorful.

Ingredients:

Fingerling potatoes- 10 to 12 halved length wise

String beans- 8 to 10 cut into half

Asparagus- 8 to 10, woody ends trimmed

Olive oil- 2 Tbsp

Kosher salt and fresh ground Pepper- To taste

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 400°c. Cook the potatoes for 4 to 5 minutes in salt water, drain the water and allow it to cool.

Line a thin sheet of foil onto a baking tray; arrange the potatoes and sprinkle 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until potatoes turns golden brown and crispy.

Meanwhile toss string beans and asparagus with remaining olive oil and keep aside.

Remove the potatoes and toss string beans, asparagus along with potatoes and bake for few more minutes until they are tender but still crisp. This makes a great snack or can be eaten as a side dish with something like a sandwich.
