Spring Sides Week: Roasted Dill Potatoes

J – Simple. Easy. Rich.

Many times, I just can’t put those three words together to describe a potato dish. They always seem to use several bowls or pots, have a number of ingredients, have added cream or fat and take too much time to prepare. Not so with this guy.

This Spring side is elegant in its simplicity … while delivering unexpected depth of flavor.

I’m a huge fan of dill. Christina is not … .

Recently, after ravishing the last of the dill pickle spears, I got some fresh dill to make more. Of course, a large Asian Farmer’s Market bunch of dill is way more than needed. But, hey, it’s only 50 cents … Now, I had the it-was-on-sale problem.

After some conversations, we decided to keep it simple and try to build on dill’s “friends” garlic and pepper flakes who do so well in the dill pickles.

A simple, roasted potato dish, adding garlic, salt, pepper, oil and red pepper flakes to the dill.
