Author Notes: I love caramelized onions, they give such an amazing flavor to any meal, whether a burger, quiche, soup or this potato dish. Roasted peppers, mushrooms or beets can be added to the potatoes , I just happened to have cherry tomatoes on hand. You could also toss through some baby spinach or arugula while the potatoes are still warm, so that the leaves wilt a little. —Katheryn's Kitchen
cup olive oil plus 4 tablespoons extra of oil
pounds Baby potatoes cut in half, red or white will do.
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
cup Herbs like rosemary, thyme and oregano
Large onion thinly sliced and caramelized
cups Cherry tomatoes, slow roasted
cup Coarsely chopped up fresh dill, parsley, basil or tarragon, whichever ones are your favorite, mix them up.
- In a heavy thick bottomed pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-low heat; cook onion, stirring often, until light brown, about 45 minutes, to caramelize onions properly it takes time.
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Toss potatoes in a medium bowl with 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- In another bowl toss cherry tomatoes( I used yellow but red are fine) with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- Sprinkle the hardier herbs, thyme, rosemary and oregano, on the bottom of a parchment lined baking sheet, then top with the potatoes and cherry tomatoes.
- Roast until the potatoes are tender and brown on the edges, 30–35 minutes, the tomatoes will be ready at the same time.
- Transfer the potatoes, caramelized onions and roasted cherry tomatoes to a serving bowl and toss with the 1/2 cup of coarsely chopped dill, parsley, chives, basil or tarragon. Do not transfer over the hardier herbs that were baked in the oven, they will be too tough. They were placed on the bottom of the pan to transfer some flavor to the potatoes and tomatoes. This dish can be served hot or just at room temperature.
