Roasted New Potatoes, Peppers and Vine Tomatoes with Harissa

Roasted new potatoes, peppers and vine tomatoes basted in olive oil and Rose Harissa paste. The tomatoes end up almost melting, creating a lovely sweet tasting coating for the potatoes and peppers.
There's no real recipe to this one, I made up as I went along

New potatoes cut to mak
e them of equal size if they aren't already.
Red Bell pepper, cut into strips. Throw them into a shallow baking dish pour over a good amount of extra virgin olive oil.
Season well with sea salt and pepper.
Sprinkle over a pinch of dried oregano and freshly picked thyme le
Mix with your hands to coat everything nicely and then stir through a good dollop of Rose Harissa paste.

Put a bunch of vine tomatoes on the top, drizzle them with olive oil.

Bake in a preheated ove
n 200C/400F or Gas 6 for about 40 to 50 minutes or until the potatoes have cooked through. You will want to move everything about a bit half way through.
Test by inserting a sharp knife. Remove the stalk form the tomatoes and serve immediately.

Harissa paste is available from any good supermarket and if I do say so myself this is one seriously yummy side dish.


  1. What a lovely dish.. love roast stuff :)

  2. Jan we were on same wavelengths that day because I roasted some new potatoes as well!

    Unfortunately for me, it's difficult to find premade harissa/tahini or any ethnic sauce for that matter in the US. I'll give new potatoes a try w/ harissa when I stop being lazy and make my own!

  3. Great article thanx for sharing

  4. I love this! It seems packed with flavors!

  5. Hope your home grown tomatoes will soon look like those in the photo Jan!
    Lovely delicious dish.

  6. i love these, looks both delicious and healthy! :-) once in a while it's good to take a detour from my normal asian cooking and hop over to grilled and roasted western style food!
