Ok. I’m taking a break from the flatbreads. Don’t worry – they’ll be up soon enough (I need to take more pictures – we gobbled up the last 2 too fast). You have BBQ Chicken and Thai Chicken Flatbreads to look forward to. In the meantime, I wanted to share something simple and beautiful and vibrant. Something I do all the time that I’ve never really thought of showcasing in a post, but figured – hey, why not share in case everyone isn’t already roasting their veggies and potatoes. So, I give you my Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus Recipe.
This Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus is packed with flavor and could not be easier to throw together. It barely even needs a recipe – toss together some EVOO, fresh thyme, salt and pepper, and don’t forget the heaps of freshly grated parmesan. If you pack it in aluminum foil, you can throw it on the grill for 20 minutes with your steak and you have a complete meal without really even thinking.


Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus


Roasted Potatoes with Asparagus Recipe
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1 Bunch Asparagus
  • 1 Bag Teeny Tiny Potatoes (or Reds)
  • 6 Sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • 2 Tablespoons EVOO
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • Heaps of Grated Parmesan (yes, HEAPS is a measurement, what?)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Wash asparagus, thyme and potatoes
3. Pluck off thyme
4. Quarter or half potatoes (the smaller they are the faster they’ll cook)
5. Chop onion into bite-sized chunks
6. In a bowl, mix together all ingredients except the parmesan
7. Grate or add parmesan right to the top, spreading evenly
8. Roast for 20 minutes
Humble little dish, but it’s a staple at our house and completes a meal without much thought. If you’re looking to spice things up, you can use Paprika instead of Thyme or add some Champagne Vinegar to zip it up.
