Za’atar smashed potatoes with chipotle tahini is a fun new side dish to try this week. The crispy potatoes are tossed in a few simple seasonings and paired with a creamy & spicy tahini sauce.
Za’atar Smashed Potatoes
Mini potatoes are such a fun side dish to serve with any meal. They’re boiled then roasted until crispy, and can be seasoned in so many ways.
I love to add an extra layer of flavor with a sauce, like with my buffalo smashed potatoes. I topped these potatoes with my favorite chipotle tahini, which I’ve been adding to just about anything and everything (think salads, veggies, and even fish!)
These potatoes have the perfect middle eastern touch. The za’atar adds delicious savory flavor along with lemon zest and fresh parsley, and the chipotle tahini adds the perfect spice.
They come out so flavorful. I love them with a side of salmon and a side salad for a simple weeknight meal.
What you’ll need:
- Baby Yellow Potatoes
- Olive oil
- Za’atar spice
- Lemon zest
- Fresh parsley
- Start by boiling your baby potatoes in a large pot of water until fork tender, for about 20 minutes
- Once they’re soft, add them to a bowl and toss them with the olive oil and spices
- Next, add them to a sheet pan and smash them flat using the bottom of a cup
- Roast them in your preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes and serve with the homemade chipotle tahini
This simple side dish is seriously so easy to make and packed with flavor, I can’t wait for you guys to try it! You can tag me on Instagram if you do 🙂
