Looking for a quick and easy side dish? These Roasted Za’atar Potatoes are a delicious potato side dish!
Potatoes are a staple in my kitchen. I am always cooking with potatoes because I just can’t get enough of them. I could never cut potatoes out of my diet. That just would be horrible!
My favorite way to prepare potatoes would have to be roasting them in the oven. Roasted potatoes are so easy to make. Usually I just roast the potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper. So simple, but delicious!
Every once in awhile I like to switch up the basic roasted potatoes. I love adding different spices to the potatoes. Cooking with spices is such a great way to add tons of flavor.
Za’atar is one of my favorite spice blends. Have you cooked with za’atar before? If you haven’t, I highly recommend try it out. Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend of sumac, sesame seed and herbs.
Za’atar is perfect for sprinkling on vegetables and salads.
For this recipe, I used tiny potatoes which don’t take very long to cook. Just a quick 25 minutes in the oven for these little potatoes. If your potatoes are on the larger side, they will take up to 40 minutes.
