Dishing Up the Dirt

Roasted Potatoes with Romesco Sauce & Soft Boiled Egg

One of the things that I regret not sharing much of on the blog is our recipes for canning/freezing vegetables and sauces. It’s such an afterthought even though it’s something we do every fall to help preserve the harvest. My goal this coming summer/fall is to share more of our preserving tips and recipes to help you preserve the harvest as well!

Anyhow, we canned some roasted red peppers last fall and one of my favorite condiments in the world is romesco sauce. It’s a smokey sauce that has a lovely kick from garlic, roasted red peppers, smoked paprika and toasted almonds. It’s lovely added to pasta, smeared on a slice of toasted baguette, paired with meat or in this case, tossed with some roasted potatoes. There are many different recipes out there but I’m partial to the simplicity of our version. I hope you all enjoy these roasted potatoes as much as we do. Don’t skip the soft boiled egg–it’s the perfect addition and makes this filling enough to be a complete meal. We enjoyed these roasted potatoes with a few IPA’s while hanging out on the deck in the warm spring sunshine. We’re loving this spring weather here at the farm!

Cheers from Tumbleweed!

    What’s with all the eggs? Like the veggie variety you used to have. Did that go away because you landed (sold out) a book deal?!
