Potato, Red Pepper and Onions

image

My toddler isn’t a fan of plain, steamed vegetables (and to be honest, I’m not that crazy about them either!), so I’m always on the lookout for tasty side dishes. Here’s one we really enjoyed, that’s quick and easy (another must when you’ve got small children!)

Ingredients

4 medium potatoes
1 red onion
1 red capsicum (bell pepper)
4 large cloves garlic, crushed or chopped
3 teaspoons rosemary
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

1.  Preheat oven to 200°C (400° F).
2.  Cut potatoes, onion and capsicum (pepper) into approximately 1 inch pieces.
3.  Place all of the vegetables into a large bowl or plastic bag. Sprinkle with the garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Drizzle with the oil and toss well to combine.
4.  Spread into one layer on a baking tray. Roast until potatoes are tender, approx. 45 minutes.

You could use thyme, Italian herb mix or a Cajun spice mix instead of rosemary. You could also use green capsicum (pepper) instead of (or in addition to) the red capsicum. Brown onions could also be used rather than red. So many options for a tasty side dish!

Do you have any quick and tasty side dish recipes? Please, please, please let me know in the comments (I could really do with some inspiration!)

  1. sounds yummy. We love cheddar potato strips: http://thematzats.blogspot.com/2009/04/cheddar-potato-strips.html so yummy and pretty easy too.

  2. This has all of the spices and flavors I love (and have made my family come to love). I can’t wait to add this to my rotation!

    I usually make the potatoes with just rosemary, garlic and olive oil in an aluminum foil pouch. No mess and delicious! I’m excited to try your twist!

    Stopped by from SITS!
