There's something quite lovely about something so simple. One ingredient featured in a sweet, rich dish like these Easy Tomato Potatoes is a wonderful thing.
This is a great, quick, and easy side dish and everyone will love it! When I have leftovers (rare, I must say), I add them to stew or a veggie stir-fry. My family also loves them as a snack! And if I'm not careful, my husband will sneak into the kitchen and eat all of these before I even have a chance to serve them!
- 1 pound fingerling potatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Serves 2 to 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Wash and dry the potatoes, and cut them in half, lengthwise.
Heat a large saute pan (a cast iron skillet is perfect) with the olive oil, tomato paste, and salt. Let these ingredients simmer for about a minute and use a whisk to blend them.
Over high heat, add the potatoes and cook until they begin to brown, about 2 minutes. Add about 1/4 cup of water, reduce the heat to low, and cover. Let the potatoes steam this way until they are tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the cover and cook until all the liquid has evaporated and the potatoes are nicely browned, about 2 more minutes.
