Fragrant rosemary roasted potatoes served with juicy tomatoes and a creamy butter bean dip. Heaven!
This recipe for rosemary roasted potatoes served with juicy tomatoes and a creamy butter bean dip is so satisfying and comforting. Filled with wonderful flavours, this is a great dish to share as an appetiser or main.
The inspiration for this recipe comes from a lunch we had on an Italian motorway driving back from Croatia. While there was nothing special about the facilities, the food was absolutely delicious. I am still salivating at the thought of the side dish of rosemary roasted potatoes slowly cooked in aromatic olive oil which I had a second and third helping of.
While reminiscing about travel memories last week, I decided to turn this lunch into something more substantial, adding some juicy roasted tomatoes and creamy butter bean dip to it.
How to make these rosemary roasted potatoes with tomatoes & butter bean dip?
This is a really easy and straightforward recipe, which has about 15 minutes of active time.
First, you will need to part-boil the potatoes for 10 minutes before cutting them into halves or quarters. The potatoes I used here were slightly larger than usual so I cut them into quarters.
The potatoes are then spread on a baking tray and tossed in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice and rosemary. After the potatoes have been in the oven for 15 minutes, you can add the tomatoes and slivered garlic cloves to the oven tray.
While the vegetables are roasting in the oven, you can prepare the butter bean dip. Again this is quite straightforward as the beans are whizzed in a blender with some tahini, garlic, cumin, lemon juice and olive oil. You can play around with the quantities of water, lemon juice and salt to suit your own taste and get your desired consistency.
Once you are ready to assemble this dish, simply spread the butter bean dip on a serving dish. Drizzle some extra olive oil on top. Top with the rosemary roasted potatoes and tomatoes. Season the vegetables to taste with salt and pepper.
You can eat this dish hot, warm or at room temperature.
