I love going to the farmer’s market. There are regional and seasonal varieties of basic vegetables you won’t get by going to the regular supermarkets.

Dozens of varieties of tomatoes, potatoes and apples are always to be experimented with.

So when I say these beautiful rosy colored Amarosa fingerling potatoes, I had to experiment with them.

Obviously, it depends what’s available at your local market as you might not be able to find these Amarosa potatoes.

You can still create this delicious recipe by using any variety of fingerling potatoes at your disposal. For that matter, any potatoes can be substituted in this recipe. I like to use potatoes that have a sweet buttery taste like Yukon Gold for Roasted Potatoes.

These herbaceous roasted potatoes use a few spices popular in Greek and Middle Eastern cuisine you may be unfamiliar with.

  • Sumac is made from the berries of a plant and has a tart lemon like flavor. It is often used in marinades as well as a finishing spice on many dishes. Often you may be served hummus or vegetables served with this as a garnish in Greek or Middle Eastern restaurants. 
  • Aleppo Pepper is a mild chile powder.

These pretty potatoes with a pink interior I picked up at Whole Foods were a great vehicle for the spices.

These Greek Herb Roasted Potatoes make a delicious side dish for any meal. They are also great for breakfast with scrambled eggs and herb roasted halloumi.
